2,000-year-old brick tombs found in Vietnam

Two tombs made of brick dating back to between 100-200 A.D.have been unearthed in Vietnam.

The tombs were constructed from brick, without the use of cement. The bricks in the larger tomb bore round and lozenge designs, while those in the smaller tomb were carved with fishbone-shaped patterns.

Associate Prof Nguyen Lan Cuong, deputy secretary general of the archaeology association, said the bricks bore ornate pictograms, thought to represent the name of the builder.
