Bau Tro culture

Bau Tro culture belongs to Late Neolithic and Early Metal Age, about 4.000 - 3.500 BP. Up to now, 26 sites of Bau Tro culture were found and these sites are distributed in three main geographical ranges Coastal plains in Nghe An and Ha TInh provinces, coastal plains in Quang Binh province and piedmont area of the western mountain range in Quang Binh province. Four types of location features and site structure can be recognized: sand dune, shell-midden (shell mound), mound and caves. Stone artifact consists of chipped stone tools, shouldered and un-shouldered axes/adzea and hoes. All these tools are oblong or elliptical in horizontal section. "Buffalo teeth shaped adze", is small than cutting edge and its cross-section is nearly triangular, appeared in the Middle phase and become general in the stone tool assemblage. About pottery, three major types can be recognized such as pointed-bottom pottery with exterior surfaces, round bottomed pottery with the cord-mark decoration and round bottomed pottery or footed vessel with incisions on the cord-marked surface in combination of red painted bands. The evidence from Bau Tro indicateds a maritime adaptation by people who probably occupied the area for some successive periods. It can be recognized the Quynh Van culture is one major origin of Bau Tro culture, as shown by the Thach Lac varian. And the Bau Tro culture contributed to the pre-Sa Huynh assemblages information to some axtent. Furthermore, Bau Tro people also expand the relation in Ha Long and Hoa Loc culture at the north of Vietnam, Xom Con culture at the south of Vietnam, and the inhabitant of the west of Quang Binh province.

 Nowadays, Anthropology Museum has not yet the collection of this culture.
