Exhibition: Treasures lost and found

LostTreasures5_15618 November 2013 to 31 January 2014

Shipwrecks and lost treasures captivate human curiosity and inspire treasure seeking. These books purchased to support postgraduate studies on Chinese and Vietnamese pottery describe treasured pottery. They provide a background to rumours and clues about the voyages and underwater sites where ships were thought to have sunk.

Cargoes of unique Chinese and Vietnamese pottery were shipped to remote destinations but not all ports were reached. Some ships suffered disastrous misfortunes and sunk to the sudden destination of the seabed.

The exhibition is presented by Aleksandra Nikolic (Arts Team) and the University Library’s Rare Books and Special Collections.

Where: Exhibition Space, Level 3, Fisher Library
Cost: FREE and open to the public
Times: Opening times vary please check the website
