Archaeology of East Asian Shipbuilding

The chapter pursues the chronological linkage of the two shipbuilding traditions: the East China Sea tradition and South China Sea tradition. The latter tradition has been advocated in a pioneering study on the hybrid feature of excavated ships in the South China Sea regions—the integration of construction methods from two regions, Southeast Asia and China, is evident. The chapter, however, explicates the processes of the hybridization; that is, the emergence of the South China Sea shipbuilding tradition is posited as the result from of the expansion of the East China Sea shipbuilding traditions into Southeast Asian regions. Some excavated ships in the Thai Gulfs proposed that the country was once a major supply source for the long distance merchant ships constructed by the South China Sea tradition. The voyage of these “Gulf Traders” stretched Japan, recognized as a hybrid ship.
