Among the objects, around 30 are from the Trần - Lê dynasties (1225-1789), mostly unearthed in the districts of Can Lộc and Thạch Hà in March this year, according to Trần Phi Công, head of the Research and Collection Department of the museum.

There are some Sino-Nôm documents on land-use rights from the Nguyễn Dynasty (1802-1945) and household utensils used by people in the same period.

Other antiquities include an ivory-enameled ceramic bowl, a number of enameled dishes with decorative patterns and glazed terracotta bowls.
