Since 2008 an international research team working with archaeologists from the Institute of Archaeology (IA) has employed collaborative, multi-disciplinary approaches to community engagement, awareness raising, cooperative training and capacity building activities associated with underwater cultural heritage in Vietnam. This helps Vietnam to preserve, protect and valorize underwater cultural heritage by capitalizing on the annual presence of experienced maritime archaeologists, and other researchers, conducting the Bach Dang river and Van Don Battlefield Research Project.
