Intact shipwreck to be removed from river and displayed

(10:41:17 AM 06/01/2014)
(Tinmoitruong.vn) - A 19th century shipwreck discovered in 2012 in the Lo River in the northern city of Tuyen Quang is now being removed from the river.


A wreck dating back to the 19th century salvaged from the Lo River in Thai Nguyen City.


The wooden ship, which should be removed by the end of January, measures 41m long, 8.8m wide, and 2m high, and is covered with thin bronze pieces.


The ship appears to be intact, and contains various objects, including five bronze oil lamps with glass bulbs, said archeologists.


They believe the ship was powered by a steam engine dating to the end of 19th or early 20th century. Some of the lights found on the ship were manufactured in England and Germany.


Archeologists noted that this type of ship was rarely found in Viet Nam, making it particularly valuable because it might tell about the history of ship building, as well as the trade between Viet Nam and other countries in the 19th century.


According to Dao Dang Cuong, deputy director of the project to retrieve the ship from the river, the ship and items found aboard are to be put on display in the provincial museum.
