Hello, Mike! You have been reading the newspaper for quite a while. What`s new?
Oh, yes. I am reading the story on the Chinese porcelain found from wrecks deep under sea.
Wow! They are sure to be cultural relics. How old are they?
Well, actually there is a company, which has been doing the wrecking for 15 years. Lots of porcelain items were salvaged and they are from different times.
It sounds mysterious. Those wrecks must have been commercial ships. What were their destinations? I guess archaeologists are interested in these things.
You are right. They can tell us a lot about the history of trading on sea. For example, there was lots of porcelain in a Sweden commercial ship named Gtheborg, which sank more than two hundred years ago.
So the ship was from China to Sweden. It is amazing! I cannot believe China and Sweden were trading with each other from such early times.
I think so too. This also shows Chinese porcelain was very popular in the world, and it still is.
