via Straits Times, 16 June 2021: Two shipwrecks found in Singapore waters found by archaeologists in Singapore – one from the 14th century and another from the 18th century.
Two shipwrecks – one dating possibly to the 14th century and the other to the 18th – have been excavated within Singapore’s waters – a first for the nation and a ground-breaking development for its maritime heritage.
Both wrecks, bearing Chinese ceramics as their primary cargo, were found in the waters off Pedra Branca, a rocky outcrop surrounded by shallow waters where ships throughout history have come to grief.
The plan is to display the artefacts in museums here from the end of this year.
