Update: Dec 30, 2016
Four-meter deep successive cultural layers dating from the 8th to 20th centuries have been uncovered around the center of the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long after one year of excavation at the Kinh Thien Palace in Ha Noi.

The results were announced at a scientific seminar entitled “Reports on Preliminary Results of Kinh Thien Palace Excavation in 2016”, held by the Thang Long-Ha Noi Heritage Preservation Center and the Viet Nam Institute of Archaeology, on December 28 in Ha Noi. 

According to reports delivered at the event, many structures such as the general court, surrounding walls and corridor belonging to the early period of the Later Le Dynasty and the warlord period of the Later Le Dynasty from 15th to 18th centuries were among the newly unearthed relics.

Scientists at the seminar agreed that the newly found archaeological relics are evidence of the diversity and richness of relics at the Palace and are important premise for later research and preservation projects on the relic site of the central sector of the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long.
