The Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism in the central province of Ha Tinh and the Vietnam History Museum began a third excavation December 29 of the Phoi Phoi - Bai Coi archeological site in Nghi Xuan District.

Archeologists will carry out work on the 200-square-meter area until next April in hopes of learning more about two prehistoric cultures known as Dong Son and Sa Huynh.

The Phoi Phoi - Bai Coi archeological site was first discovered in 1974 by the History Faculty of the General University in Hanoi.

In 2008, the museum and Ha Tinh’s Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism excavated the area for a second time and made significant finds relating to the two prehistoric cultures.
