Longqing Wreck (circa 1570)


This wreck was located by Peter Sachs, Tommy Botha and Eric Lombard in international waters near Chagos archipelago. In spite of vigorous research this wreck remains unidentified. The team recovered over 700 pieces of porcelain from the reign of Emporer Longqing (1567-1572) (insert left) which puts the wreck into a narrow time frame.

The fact that Lonquing only reigned for five years makes this porcelain extremely rare. Two bronze cannon were also salvaged.
