Thousands of objects belonging to Sa Huynh culture that dated back to 2,500-3,000 years have been discovered during excavations carried out in the Ma Vuong Mound in Pho Thach commune, Duc Pho district, Quang Ngai province from June 17-July 4.

The Head of the archaeologists’ group, Doan Ngoc Khoi, said that his group also found porcelain Linga among earthen ports, vases and bowls and other porcelain and stone artefacts.

This was the second porcelain Linga statue found in the Ma Vuong Mound with the first discovered in 1978, he added.
