The Hoi An shipwreck sank in an area of the South China Sea called the “Dragon’s Embrace”. The hoard was named after the nearby town of Faifo, today known as Hoi An. The porcelain recovered were produced in the mid 15th century in Chu Dou, in the Hai Duong province, modern North Vietnam. This was known as the biggest production centre of ceramic and porcelain in Medieval Vietnam. Several thousands pieces of pottery have been recovered from the Hoi An shipwreck, which are considered one of the most precious and complete representation of Vietnamese ceramics.
