Abstract: In the history of Champa and Dai Viet, the Hoa Chau citadel (Quang Thanh commune, Quang Dien district, Thua Thien Hue province, Viet Nam) played a very important role in the strategies of defence and attack, protection and expansion of the Champa dynasties and Dai Viet, which were closely associated with many significant historical events in Thua Thien Hue. The evidence attained from the archaeological investigations, excavations and studies demonstrates that the Hoa Chau played multiple roles in the military, administration, economy and culture in which the military role was vital and maintained in almost historical periods. In the Champa period (before 1306), the Tran and Ho period (1306 - 1407), the Ming domination period (1407 - 1427), the early post - Le period (1428 - 1471), the Hoa Chau citadel played a role of the military citadel, while its administrative and economic roles were secondary. After 1471, the southern territory of Dai Viet was extended to Binh Dinh, the Hoa Chau citadel lost its outpost and as a result, its military role declined and was replaced by the administrative and economic role.
