A substantial early Neolithic shell midden on the coast of northern Vietnam south of the Red River delta near Vinh. The midden is over 5 m thick and dates to about 3000 bc, perhaps a late variant of the local Hoabinhian Culture. A flaked stone industry, cord‐impressed pottery, ceramic net weights, and grinding stones have been found in the midden, together with contracted burials. The faunal remains include wild deer, cattle, pig, dog, and elephant, all presumably hunted.
