Influences of Early Shipbuilding Technology: a study on the (sewn) construction of the Phanom - Surin shipwreck in Thailand Other events...
Phanom-Surin shipwreck is a western-Indian-Ocean-style sewn ship, dated to the 9th century AD, recently found in Thailand. It exhibits planks fastened edge-to-edge with fibre cordage continuously cross stitched over wadding. The sewing seams run along the length of the ship hull. This shipbuilding technique is known in western Indian Ocean regions and has different characteristics from Southeast Asian sewn boats, or ‘lashed lug’. In addition to this, the PNS carried ceramics ranging from Persia to China that help better understand the relationship between China and the west in the 1st Millennium AD through Mainland Southeast Asia. Being the only surviving sewn shipwreck of this type, it is highly hoped that the PNS can be an excellent reference to impart knowledge of ancient shipbuilding technology. Ultimately the intensive and extensive study of the PNS is one potential way to safeguard such heritage for present and future generations. This study can also help raise public awareness to fight against illicit trafficking of our priceless heritage.
