Archaeology of East Asian Shipbuilding

The first part of this chapter and the previous chapter look at the Yellow Sea shipbuilding tradition that is principally identified in costal and riverine ships with flat bottom structure and operating in the northern waters of East Asia. In the discussion of shipbuilding along the coast of the Yellow Sea, one distinctive sub-tradition to construct the northern Chinese flat bottom ships is featured with the use of transverse bulkheads. The chapter presents the data of more than twenty ships’ hulls that have been excavated on land and underwater in north China. This chapter highlights some of the early ship remains chronologically according to their dynastic periods, from the Sui Dynasty (589–618 A.D.) to the Song Dynasty (960–1279 A.D.) to identify the transition of ships structure related to use from riverine areas to coastal areas.

Keywords:   flat bottom, bulkheads, keel, Chinese shipbuilding, riverine ships, coastal ships
