Maritime Archaeological Heritage in Binh Dinh and Phu Yen Provinces


Tóm tắt

Binh Dinh and Phu Yen are the two provinces with great potential for archaeological research in general and underwater archaeology in particular. The system of rivers and canals is fairly dense; along the coast, large estuaries and ancient trade ports are found, making it favourable for shipping, anchorage as well as commodity export-import activities. They also lie in the regional maritime trade routes with well-known seaports in history. The main types of archaeological relics such as ancient trade ports, sunken ships and ship-building workshopsshipyards are found sufficiently in the two provinces. In terms of date and origin, there is a diversity of the archaeological artefacts, including the ceramic, the stone, the iron and the wooden ones. Due to the present demands for people’s life and local economic development, the cultural heritage is getting damaged more and more seriously.
