Tomb of prehistoric people discovered in cave

Tomb of prehistoric people discovered in cave | Ancient South East Asia | Scoop.it

Excavating Con Moong Cave, archaeologists found tons of shells and a lot of working tools. The most valuable discovery is the remains of prehistoric people in tombs dating back tens of thousands of years ago.

 

The cave is the "big house" of the ancient Vietnamese. But this is not just a place of residence, but also the burial site. Digging to a depth of 3.6 m, archaeologists discovered the remains of four individuals of the Old Stone Age. Among them, there is a relatively intact tomb. The dead were buried in the lying position, with working tools made of stone.

According to scientists, Con Moong along with Nguoi Xua, Dang, Lai and Moc Long caves form a complex of relics showing the life of a community in a broad valley, with the change in population, location of residence and mode of production and this community contributed to create the Da But culture.

Since it was discovered, Con Moong cave annually attracts thousands of local and foreign tourists.
