Pingtan Underwater Archaeology Base
The National Fujian (Pingtan) Underwater Cultural Heritage Protection Base and Fujian (Pingtan) Underwater Archaeology Base brought a new chapter in underwater archaeology in E China’s Fujian province.
The bases are built on the underwater ruins across the Haitan Strait of Pingtan and Haisi (Maritime Silk Road) culture. The ruins have been selected among the 7th batch of the “National Key Cultural Relics Protection Units,” the first of its kind along the coast of the mainland and the most concentrated underwater remains discovered in the country. At present, the project has finished the preliminary design. Construction is scheduled to start in August this year.
