Archaeological study in the South China Sea: exploring the 'Maritime Silk Road'

People's Daily Online January 7, 2014

Archaeologist Li Jilong said: “Every time I dive to the sea floor, it will occur to me that hundreds of years ago, ancient merchant ships, fully loaded with goods, sail along the ‘Maritime Silk Road’ to the Southeast Asia.” As a member of the first underwater archaeology team of the South China Sea, Li Jilong has witnessed the development of underwater archaeology in his more than 20 years of work. He is deeply attached to the South China Sea, the underwater cultural relics and the “Maritime Silk Road”.
