A number of ceramics and stone artefacts have been discovered by divers in Ly Son at Quang Ngai Province. I’m sure more information about this will be announced at next week’s underwater archaeology conference.

Mr. Doan Sung, adviser of the Anh Duong Investment Development Company, which was assigned to survey and explore Quang Ngai waters, said archaeologists had discovered many ceramic artifacts with unique floral patterns and dozens of ancient rocks lying at a depth of 4-10 m below the water surface, about 70 m from the An Binh island commune, Quang Ngai.

The company will propose to the local authorities to set up an underwater heritage preservation zone in the island district of Ly Son.

Dr. Doan Ngoc Khoi, deputy director of Quang Ngai Museum, said based on the artifacts that have been found, the waters of Ly Son Island are the home to ancient sunken ships.
