SEOUL, July 21 (Yonhap) -- A joint exhibition 'Underwater Relics, Traces of the Goryeo Sea' is to be held at the Incheon City Museum from the 27th to the 17th of October, announced by the National Research Institute of Maritime Cultural Heritage on the 21st. 

The earliest ship found in South Korean seas is 'Yeongheungdo Ship' from the Unified Silla era discovered in Incheon.

This exhibition was prepared to show the achievements of underwater archaeology in Incheon, which has been carried out for 45 years, starting with the discovery of 'Shinan Ship', a transportation used in the Chinese Yuan Dynasty when trading. About 430 artifacts are to be on display.


The exhibition consists of three chapters: 'Setting off to Sea', 'Life on Ship', and 'Cargoes Carried by the Wind and the Sea'. It introduces how the ships were like sailing out to sea loaded with cargoes and Mokkan(wooden tablets with inscriptions used as tags on cargoes) and exhibit various relics that can infer the lives of the sailors and the trading patterns of the Goryeo Dynasty. 


"This is an exhibition that allows us to examine the footsteps of underwater archaeology in Korea" and "We will continue to hold various exhibitions in collaboration with the local museums", said an official from the National Institute of Maritime Cultural Heritage.
