100 foot long Chinese junk raised from sea bed

The 1421 hypothesis has gained a lot of momentum over the past 12 months and in December the U.K.’s Sunday Times newspaper published an article alluding to Gavin’s research. As you can see from the link below, a 100 foot long Chinese junk, dating from the Southern Song dynasty, has been raised from the sea bed off the coast of China, as part of a hugely ambitious archaeological project. Although excavation and cataloguing of the ship’s contents will take some years, we are sure it will turn out to be yet another string in the 1421 bow. As Tim Pattison of the Sunday Times writes “It is hoped that the Nanhai will prove the existence of a marine silk road that linked southern China with Europe as well as Africa and Southeast Asia ”

We can but wait and see….
