Ancient tomb discovered in Ba Hoe relics

BTO- An open terracotta cluster has been recently detected due to landfall at Ba Hoe archaeological cave relic in Hamlet 5, Ham Duc commune, Ham Thuan Bac district. After initial recovery, a jar tomb with a variety of burial objects was found by the Binh Thuan provincial Museum. The newly-found objects include pots, jars, bowls, copper arrows, and stone beads.

The discovered location is 2-meter-dept compared to the surface of the relic, and 48km away from the National highway 1A to the west. The tomb is only 50meter from a hole excavated in 2016 to the southeast.

Ba Hoe cave relic is found in the 1920s, when the French executed the national highway 1 work. Since then, many archeologists had made a lot of studies and excavations as they detected traces of residents, tombs and some typical symbols of the Sa Huynh cultural relic.

Notably, the 2016 excavation revealed 43 tombs including 2 types of jar tombs and earth tombs with a mass of specimens.
