18th century Chinese merchant vessel discovered in C. Philippines
From:Xinhua  Writer:  Date:2012-03-06

 

The Philippine National Museum had validated the recovery of an 18th century Chinese Merchant Vessel in the Roxas City sea in Central Philippines, the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) said Saturday.

Junior Grade Jimmy Oliver Gingno, station commander of PCG- Roxas told local media Saturday that he received the report of the National Museum.

"Personnel from the National Museum conducted an exploration in the sea in February. They validated the findings on the broken porcelains found inside the vessel as antique," said Gingno.

The PCG however expressed disappointment since there were no artifacts found in the said vessel when it was discovered. PCG officials believed the artifacts may have already been taken away by divers who discovered the existence of the vessel earlier.

"We only document the said vessel and we hope to preserve it," Vingno said.
