ĐẮK NÔNG – The central province of Đắk Nông has received donations of nearly 800 ancient artefacts from private collectors.
Collector Nguyễn Ngọc Ẩn and others from Bình Thuận Province handed over to the Đắk Nông Province Museum a wide variety of items such as stone tools, ceramic household items, copperware, and jewellery, many dating back to 500 - 700 BCE and from cultures such as Sa Huỳnh, Óc Eo and Đông Sơn.
The others are from the times of dynasties such as the Lý, Trần and Nguyễn between the 10th and 20th centuries.
Ẩn said he donated his collection to the museum so that it could preserve and fully utilise its value, helping the public learn history and about various cultures.
He has so far donated around 50,000 items to 10 organisations around Việt Nam.
Lê Trọng Yên, deputy chairman of the Đắk Nông People’s Committee, thanked the donors for giving away valuable artefacts and improving the local museum.
He said that local authorities are focusing on raising awareness of the importance of cultural heritages and teaching younger generations about their heritage.
Since 2019 the province has received over 2,000 valuable artefacts as gifts from private collectors. VNS
