To mark its 20th anniversary, the Macao Museum, in partnership with the Maritime Silk Road Museum of Guangdong, is organising “Treasure from the Deep Sea – Exhibition of Underwater Archaeological Relics of the Nanhai No. 1”. It refers to the “Nanhai No.1” shipwreck, discovered in the waters of the South China Sea, and which is considered an important source of information about the Maritime Silk Road. It is thought to have been a civilian trade ship that set sail from Quanzhou port during the Song Dynasty (mid-10th century to the final quarter of the 13th century). The exhibition features a total of 99 sets of artefacts found at the underwater archaeological site.
