Vietnam Institute of Archaeology and Ha Giang Departmen of Culture, Sports and Tourism discovered many relics of archaeology in the prehistoric and protohistoric times in Dong Van Karst Plateau.
During more than one week, fourteen archaeological sites in the northernmost province of Ha Giang have been excavated with some districts Dong Van, Meo Vac, and Yen Minh in the Dong Van Karst Plateau.
Meanwhile, stone axes and grinding bases dating back to the late Neolithic Era (New Stone Age) about 4,000 years ago were unearthed at four sites in Thuong Phung, Xin Cai and Pa Vi communes in Meo Vac district.
Some archeologists also discovered pebble tools of primitive type existing in the Palaeolithic Era at 10 sites in Na Khe, Mau Due, Niem Son and Du Gia communes, Yen Minh district. They are similar to those aged about 20,000 years old found in Can Ty commune, nearby Quan Ba district, in October 2013.

Food traces like shells of snails that only appeared in these times were also dug up in Yen Minh’s Du Gia commune.

The Dong Van Karst Plateau, with 80 percent of its terrain being limestone, spreads over Quan Ba, Yen Minh, Meo Vac and Dong Van.

In so-doing, more than 20 relic sites from the Palaeolithic Era to the Metal Period have been discovered in the Dong Van Karst Plateau, which signals great archaeological values here. It is the first step to discover more the land by a big potentiality for a cultural and historical relic in the prehistoric and protohistoric time
