Hong Kong’s sunken treasure: ancient anchor and cannon reveal our rich maritime history



Two monumental artefacts were recovered over the weekend by a local diving group, marking a maritime heritage milestone for Hong Kong .

A diving team from the Hong Kong Underwater Heritage Group recovered an anchor stock - the upper part of an anchor - around Basalt Island, and a cannon off the coast of High Island. The anchor stock is believed to date back to the Song Dynasty, making it over 1,000 years old - Hong Kong’s oldest marine artefact.
