The VNMH delegation also visited and worked at the Sichuan Institute of Archeology and Cultural Heritage. During that meeting, the two sides exchanged and agreed initially on some issues related to the joint study of archeology between two agencies. In particular, in December 2018, they will conduct a survey at Early Dong Son culture relic in North Vietnam. This is the basis for long-term cooperation. Together with attending the meetings and visiting the monuments mentioned above within the framework of archaeological conference, VNMH’s delegation also visited the Sichuan Provincial Museum and the Wuhou Memorial to gain insights into museum activities and heritage preservation of Sichuan Province in particular and China in general.
