Accordingly, nearly 500 valuable documents, artefacts and images dating back to the Ly Dynasty (1009-1225), excavated in Bac Ninh province, are on display.

The exhibition is among activities in celebration of the 1010th anniversary of Thang Long – Hanoi (1010-2020) and towards the 13th National Party Congress.

It aims to inspire patriotism and pride in the nation’s history, and educate the public on the culture of the country in general and Bac Ninh province in particular.

The exhibition is divided into three parts. The first part features the land and people of Bac Ninh, the native land of King Ly Cong Uan (974-1028) who founded the Ly Dynasty and established the country’s capital in Thang Long (modern-day Hanoi).

The second part consists of artefacts, documents and photos arranged scientifically, contributing to affirming how the Ly Dynasty built a brilliant civilisation with many great achievements.

The third part is photos on archaeological, research, restoration and embellishment activities related to the relic sites and artefacts from Ly Dynasty, demonstrating the Bac Ninh provincial authorities’ efforts to preserve and promote the value of the dynasty.

The national construction of Dai Viet (now Vietnam), the army and people led to a resounding victory in the resistance war against the Song invaders from China.

The event will run until the end of December./.
