* Binh Thuan ship

The Binh Thuan shipwreck was discovered in 2001 near the province of Binh Thuan, Vietnam. It is the remains of a late 17th-century Chinese merchant ship that was carrying a variety of trade goods, predominantly Chinese blue and white porcelain, along the Southeast Asian trade routes.

At the time of discovery, the ship held a large quantity of ceramics, along with wooden, metal artifacts, and other trade items, most of which were well-preserved. The porcelain recovered from the Binh Thuan shipwreck demonstrates exquisite craftsmanship and provides insight into the production techniques and aesthetics of Chinese porcelain at the time, as well as the trade relationships between China and Southeast Asia.

This find has made significant contributions to the fields of maritime archaeology, history, and the study of trade routes. The artifacts from the Binh Thuan shipwreck are now displayed in various museums and by private collectors, serving as valuable resources for studying the art and culture of the late Ming Dynasty.
