A huge number of Chinese ceramics from the Tang, Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties of China has been discovered in the Thang Long Imperial Citadel site, in which the number of Song ceramics found in the site is extremely unique and rare. These are vivid examples reflecting on Chinese ceramics used within the life of the ancient Thang Long royal palaces, and at the same time evoking the exchange relationship between China and Dai Viet's Thang Long capital in history. This important finding also opens up research on the relationship between ceramics found at Thang Long citadel with Chinese ceramics made in China for the export market. This is a very meaningful scientific issue in researching and understanding the economic and cultural relationship and exchange between Thang Long, Vietnam and China in history.
The Institute of Imperial Citadel Studies is organizing an international scientific seminar in December 2020 with the title: Chinese Song ceramics in the Thang Long Imperial Citadel.
