The discovery of these objects along with the existence of Thanh Ho national archaeological site, about a kilometre from Dong Mieu, has significant meaning in studying Champa culture and history, Vinh said.

The Phu Yen Museum plans to receive the uncovered objects and put them on display for researchers, locals and tourists.
