Woodblocks, royal documents tell Hoi An-Quang Nam history

The history of Hoi An- Quang Nam is being told by artifacts on display at an exhibition, which began in the ancient town of Hoi An on Tuesday.

The exhibition features nearly 80 royal documents and woodblocks about the establishment and development of Quang Nam province as well as its historic celebrities. The event, which will continue until next Wednesday, is part of the 6th Quang Nam Heritage Festival.

UNESCO recognized the Nguyen Dynasty's woodblocks as a world documentary heritage in 2009, while administrative documents signed by the Nguyen Kings received the certificate of the Asia-Pacific Region's Memory of the World Program in 2014.
