Thanks Blam.Scientists unearth bronze casting centreExcavations in Vinh Phuc Province have revealed the 3,500-year-old bronze casting centre of Dong Son... Within a 100sq.m area, 108 bronze artefacts were unearthed. Thousands of pointed axes, spears, arrows, hooks, pieces of copper wire and many pieces of earthenware were also discovered. Other findings made of stone and ceramics were much scarcer in comparison with bronze items. The findings show that about 3,500 years ago, bronze instruments played an important role and appeared to replace similar items made of stone... The vestiges of the inhabitants of the stage of the Dong Son Culture have been discovered through the stratum structure. In addition to bronze items, there are some traces of rattan ware, and woven items.
