The Centre for Ho Dynasty Citadel Heritage Conservation has announced that it recently uncovered several architectural artefacts dating back to the 14th -17th centuries, around the buffer zone of the world cultural heritage site.

The traces were found on Xuan Dai Mountain , in Vinh Loc district of the central Thanh Hoa province, about 5km from the Ho Dynasty Citadel.

The artefacts include many types of tiles, pottery pieces and bricks, which are similar to those found at the inner part of the citadel.

The discovery is important to the conservation, management and promotion of the heritage.

The Ho Dynasty Citadel , located in the two communes of Vinh Tien and Vinh Long , is a unique stone-made architectural work in Vietnam.

Built by Ho Quy Ly in 1397 , this citadel eventually became the home of the capital.

For more than 600 years of its existence, most of the buildings inside the Citadel were destroyed. The traces of the foundations of the old palaces still lie hidden under the rice fields.

The citadel was recognised as world’s cultural heritage by UNESCO in June 2011 .-VNA
