Gallery 2. Sinan Shipwreck

In Exhibition Room 2 of the Sinan shipwreck are displayed commodities, trade goods and parts of the shipwreck from underwater excavations. The excavation was initiated by an accidental discovery of Chinese ceramic wares by a fisherman off the waters of Jeungdo Island, Sinan County in 1975. The wreck was named after the region where it was found. The underwater excavation was conducted 11 times over a nine-year period from 1976 throughout 1984. The excavation revealed that the Sinan ship was a Chinese trading vessel destined for Japan.
