Vestiges of Ly-Tran dynasties unearthed in Hanoi suburb

Archaeologists have found artifacts believed to belong to the Ly (1009-1225) and Tran (1225-1400) dynasties at the Hoa Lam Vien excavation site in Mai Lam commune of Hanoi’s outlying Dong Anh district.

This was announced on January 18 by the Steering Board for Celebrations of the 1,000 Years of Thang Long - Hanoi and the Social Science and Humanity College under Hanoi National University.


The archaeologists also discovered many high-grade enameled pottery items dating back to the 7th-10th centuries and a number of “Giang Tay Quan” tiles, which have also been unearthed at the ancient Hoa Lu (northern Ninh Binh province) and the Thang Long citadel.


Meanwhile, a terracotta-pottery kiln was detected for the first time in Trai Gom hamlet in Viet Long commune of Soc Son district, which is not far from the Thang Long citadel.


These findings are expected to help historians gain a more comprehensive view of the ancient capital of Thang Long.
