Quang Nam: Proposing approach to relocate Trien Tranh relic site

(Cinet)- Quang Nam Provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism and Vietnam Institute of Archaeology made a report of archaeological result and contributed approaches to maintain and develop Trien Tranh relic site.
The Trien Tranh relic site containing Champa vestiges and structures in the central province Quang Nam, excavated during the construction of Da Nang-Quang Ngai expressway, will be moved to the Quang Nam Museum and Museum of Sa Huynh and Champa Culture in Duy Xuyen district for display and further study.
The information was heard at a recent conference held in Tam Ky City to review the excavation of relics in an area of 3,800 square metres in Trien Tranh relic site.
The Trien Tranh relic site, located in Chiem Son Tay valley, has close relations with other Champa relic sites such as My Son, Simhapura and Dai Chiem. However, the site disappeared in the end of the 12th century.
A raft of ceramic and porcelain objects from different origins such as Ly-Tran dynasty, China and Islam were found during the seven-month excavation. The experts also stumbled across eight architectures of houses and walls, which dated back to the 9 th century.
