At the museum students were invited to analyse recently discovered artifacts from a number of sunken ships off the coast of China. Students discovered the wide range of artifacts (plates, bowls, coins, statues, vases, books, clothing, artwork, weapons, etc.) that collectively offered further insight into what life was like over 300 years ago in this part of Asia.

This visit assisted students to gain a stronger understanding of how artifacts contribute to our understanding of the past.
