Scientists have said that the bronze drum has a strange drumhead, big diameter and several strange patterns.
According to the People’s Committee of Duy Xuyen District, the Central of Quang Nam Province, the bronze drum was found under Thu Bon river-bed, Duy Tan District by Tran Phu’s family. Dr.Diep Dinh Hoa (Ethnology Institute) has categorized this bronze drum in H2-Heger.
It is the fourth drum discovered in Quang Nam, after the Co Noon 1 drum (Co Noon hamlet, Axan commune, Tay Giang, it was considered intermediate sort between H1 and H2-Heger); Co Noon 2 (Tay Giang, H3-Heger); and the bronze drum in Phuoc Tra hamlet 1 (Hiep Duc, H2-Heger).
It is now on display in the district’s museum; and its origin and historical value are being researched.
