Ancient Vietnam: First Humans to First Kingdoms.

Ancient Vietnam: First Humans to First Kingdoms.

From the first humans to ever enter Vietnam down to the legendary Kingdom of Van Lang. The history of Vietnam is so much more than the Vietnam War.

I trace Vietnamese history from the first humans 63,000 years ago, to the Hoabinhian culture, to the Phung Nguyen, right down to the Dong Son, the amazing Bronze Age civilization of Vietnam.
