Maritime Archaeology Malaysia

An exhibition of the historic shipwrecks discovered around Malaysia, opened in November 2001 at Muzium Negara in Kuala Lumpur. It has been extended for several years, and there are hopes that it may become the nucleus of a new national maritime museum. A major section, Discovering Asia's ceramic development, draws on seven shipwrecks, spanning half a millennium.
Exhibition: * Seven shipwrecks; Specific ships: * Tg.Simpang (C10-12); * Turiang (c.1370); * Desaru (c.1845).
Topic pages: * Chronology; * Malaysia; * Ship types; * Iron; * Compass; * Soundings; * Tioman; * 1421 bunkum.
