University Press of Florida

The chapter presents the details of hull structure and construction methods of the Quanzhou Ship dating to the last quarter of the Song Dynasty’s period (960–1279 A.D.). While the ship has been examined in previous study, this is the most inclusive description of the hull based on the actual investigation and recording work of the excavated hull, generated new data and interpretation. The hull remains represent the phase of clear technological development of the East China Sea shipbuilding tradition and the maturity of shipbuilding industries in the central and southern Chinese coasts to construct merchant ships for long distance shipping during the period.

Keywords:   Quanzhou, medieval Chinese trader, East China Sea shipbuilding tradition, Song Dynasty’s maritime trade, 13th century
