via South China Morning Post, 29 November 2017: The Asia-Pacific Regional Conference on Underwater Cultural Heritage is currently underway in Hong Kong, with many participants from Southeast Asia. This report from the SCMP focuses on China’s emerging role as a leader in maritime archaeology and its potential implications for its power.
This week, more than 100 of the region’s leading marine archaeologists from 23 nations convened at the Hong Kong Maritime Museum for the Asia-Pacific Regional Conference on Underwater Cultural Heritage. At the opening reception on Monday night, the meteoric rise of China as a force in maritime archaeology was one of the popular topics of discussion.

The Asia-Pacific Regional Conference on Underwater Cultural Heritage was held earlier this month in Manila, and the proceedings are now online hosted by the Museum of Underwater Archaeology. You’ll find a number of papers related to underwater and maritime archaeology including one bit of research I was involved in on the rock art of Tham Phrayanaga or Viking Cave in Southern Thailand.
