Abstract: In early 1993, in cooperation with the Institute of Archaeology, Ha Noi and the University of Ha Noi, we undertook a small excavation on Buu Chau Hill, Tra Kieu, only a few hundred metres from the Cham temples investigated by J.-Y Claeys in the late 1920's, in the Thu Bon Valley of Central Vietnam. The aim of the research was to investigate the relationship between the late prehistoric Iron Age Sa Huynh Culture and the Indianized Cham civilization. Large quantities of pottery, bricks and roof tiles were recovered from the trench, the early levels of which go back to the late centuries of the pre-Christian era and these show an admixture of local, Indian and Han Chinese influences but rather little relationship to the Sa Huynh ceramic tradition. Further field research in the area was undertaken in March 1996.
