This wreck was discovered by fishermen in the late 1990’s, offshore from the Vietnamese town of Hoi An. The wares were made at of Chu Dau, near Hanoi, where a kiln site of the period matched the wares exactly. The ship was believed to have been wrecked in the 1480’s, and was on its way to South-East Asian markets. The recovered goods were surveyed by the Oxford University Archaeological unit, and sold in the US in 2001.
