Investigation On Sunken Ship Continues

The location and cause of the sinking of the ship Renee in Johor waters in 1923 is being investigated by the Archaeological Unit of the National Museum.

Unit curator Samsol Sahar, who headed the expedition that found the ship in October last year, said the research and excavation work to get more details on the sunken ship was ongoing.

The initial finding of the investigation was that the ship was on its way to send the dowry of a Pahang royal family member who was to marry a Perak royal family member when it sank, he told Bernama Tuesday.
