Abstract: Duy Xuyen District in Quang Nam Province is rich in archaeological sites, especially those of the late prehistoric Sa Huynh culture, the Lin Yi polity and the Champa Civilization which followed it. Tra Kieu, the ancient walled lowland city, probably once known as Simhapura, and Mi Son, its group of mountain temples some 15 km to the west, are the best known and researched sites. The archaeological sequences at Go Cam, a site of Lin Yi, and the ancient Cham capital at Tra Kieu are of especial interest here since excavations there between 1990 and 2002 show the transition from prehistory to the emergence of Champa. Preliminary results of these excavations have been reported in a number of articles which are listed in the references at the end of the article.
