Hundreds of artefacts dating back to the Tran dynasty (1226-1400) have been unearthed at Lo Giang palace in Hong Minh commune, Hung Ha district, Thai Binh province.

 Objects found at the excavation site

The information was released at a conference held on January 6 by the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences and the Thai Binh provincial Museum to announce the archaeological outcomes after a one-month excavation at the site.

Archaeologists and scientists have discovered vestiges of a foundation of wooden architectural constructions built between the 13th and 14th century as part of the Lo Giang palace.

They have also found bricks, tiles, and decorative items featuring images of dragons and phoenix as well as daily utensils such as bowls and plates made of terra-cotta, porcelain and ceramics.

The results of the excavation have provided a significant database to the research, evaluation and documentation of the Tran dynasty while contributing to promoting cultural values of the province.
