An exhibition of royal administrative documents, which dated back to the Nguyen dynasty (1802 - 1945), opened in central Thua Thien – Hue province on November 21. 

 

As many as 153 ancient documents classified into 9 categories was on display, shedding light on the era’s political, diplomatic and military affairs to socio-economic and cultural issues. 

 

Notably, there were 16 administrative documents on the Nguyen Dynasty’s enforcement of territorial sovereignty over Hoang Sa (Paracel) archipelago. 

 

This is the second time that an exhibition of this kind has been co-organised by the Hue Monuments Conservation Centre and the National Archives Centre I, marking the upcoming Vietnam Cultural Heritage Day (Nov. 23). 

 

The collection of royal documents, bearing the seal and handwritings by the Nguyen kings, was recognised as documentary heritage of the Memory of the World Programme in Asia-Pacific by UNESCO on April 14 this year.
