BibliographyEdit

King Le Du Tong was a Vietnamese Emperor who assumed the throne in 1705. Le Du Tong was the 22nd Emperor of the Le Dynasty which had been ruling over Vietnam since 1427. Farmers accidently came across the coffin of the buried Emperor when they were digging in a farmers field in 1958 and experts were first able to exam the remains in 1964.

MummificationEdit

Little is known about the mummification of Emperor Le Du Tong, however it is suspected that formaldehyde was used to preserve the body. The finding of Emperor Le Du Tong's body was a very important find as it is one of the only cases in which a leader of the Le Dynasty could be excavated and examined.
