In 2016, the Hong Kong Maritime Museum led a team of local divers from the Hong Kong Underwater Heritage Group to recover a 1,000-year-old stone anchor stock off High Island. This archaeological find highlights the historical role played by Hong Kong in the Maritime Silk Road as a safe harbour, place of replenishment and point of departure. After about two years’ conservation, the artefact is presented to the public for the first time, along with a range of excavated items (loaned from AMO) from Sacred Hill North (near Sung Wong Toi MTR Station work site of Sha Tin to Central Link) in an exhibition about Chinese maritime trade “East Meets West: Maritime Silk Routes in the 13th – 18th Centuries”, opening on the 14 August.

The exhibition showcases over 200 artefacts drawn from Mainland and Hong Kong, including Guangdong Museum, Hubei Provincial Museum, Quanzhou Maritime Museum, Guangdong Provincial Institute of Culture Relics and Archaeology, Museum of the Western Han Dynasty Mausoleum of the Nanyue King, Luoding Museum, Hong Kong Maritime Museum, the Antiquities and Monuments Office, University Museum and Art Gallery at the University of Hong Kong and other local collections. The exhibits comprise of ceramics, gold and silver, semi-precious stones, trade paintings, silk, stone carvings, historical maps and publications, metal ware, bamboo and wooden carvings, ship models and navigation maps.
