Scientists of South Korea discovered the remains of an ancient ship

South Korean scientists at the bottom of the Yellow Sea in the water area of ​​the island of Mado County Taean-gun of Chungcheong-Namdo province were found the remains of a ship, which, according to experts, belongs to the Joseon dynasty. This was announced yesterday by the representative of the National Research Institute of the Underwater Cultural Heritage of the Republic of Korea, informs Pacific Russia, ToRoss.

As reported, during the expedition in the waters of Mado Island, a sunken ancient ship was found, which was designated as "Mado the Fourth". Together with the ship, they found 111 pieces of white porcelain "Baekcha" of the Joseon Dynasty. Also found are two Buncheon celadon jugs that were common during the early Joseon Dynasty.

If the guesses of archaeologists about the origin of the ship are confirmed, then "Mado Four" will be the first in the southern Korean history of marine and underwater archeology by the ship of the Joseon dynasty, discovered in our time. Earlier in the area three ancient ships were discovered. However, all of them, as it turned out, belong to the era of the ancient Korean state of Koryo, reports the World Radio KSB.
