March 15 - The rediscovery and the dream of sailing to China
As the divers cautiously excavated into the seabed sediment, they found parts of the Hull and its cargo of porcelain, tea, rattan, pepper, galangal, lead plate, rig details, hull planking, frame-ribs, parts of the ship’s stern, and much more. During the 7 year long excavation the dream of sailing to China arise. Lecturer: Joakim Severinson.
