March 27, 2023

QUẢNG NGÃI — Sa Huỳnh Archaeological Relics in Đức Phổ Town, located in the central province of Quảng Ngãi, have been granted the certificate of National Special Heritage by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism. “It’s an honour for the province to preserve and protect a rare heritage in Việt Nam," he said. He said many antiquities related to tombs of the Sa Huỳnh Culture had been excavated by Western archaeologists and Vietnamese over 100 years ago when the Sa Huỳnh Culture was discovered in 1909. Liêm said the national heritage council, in cooperation with local authorities, will continue expanding archaeological works in building a file for recognition as UNESCO’s heritage in the coming time. Last year, the province rejected a solar power project in An Khê Lagoon as it would damage the core zone of the national special heritage.
