Artifacts confirming Vietnam’s sea and islands to go on display

Ancient artifacts will be showcased in the central province of Quang Nam as historical and legal evidence of Vietnam's sovereignty over Truong Sa (Spratly) and Hoang Sa (Paracel) archipelagoes.

On display will be antiques, maps, Chinese-transcribed documents, and 15 royal archives of the Nguyen dynasty. The exhibition will also feature 150 cultural artifacts of Vietnam's sea and islands and festival costumes worn by coastal residents. Visitors will be able to learn about fishermen's lives through film screenings, fishing tools, and their daily utensils.

This exhibition, entitled Cultural Heritage of Vietnam's sea and island, will be the highlight of the 6th Quang Nam Heritage Festival, to be held in June. It will also feature a kite festival, an exhibit of silk and brocade, sailing and windsurfing championships, and a food festival.
