Marine Silk Road: Nan Hai I

「海上絲路之“南海一號”」學生文化活動已於2010年4至24及25日舉行,六十多名同學前往廣東省海上絲路博物館參觀“南海一號”宋代古沉船面世文物,了解中國古代航海事業及其所帶動的經濟及政治變革,加強同學對中國歷史文化的認識,同時讓學生了解中國海上考古的發展。


整個行程中分別前往了廣東省第二大島–海陵島,觀看國家一級保護胎生植物紅樹林,了解紅樹林的生長過程,藉此提升同學的環保意識及了解大自然的可貴。同學們前往了世界首個水下考古專題博物館 - 廣東省海上絲路博物館,該館是以“南海一號”宋代古沉船的保護、開發與研究為題而建造。透過導賞,同學們見證了中國從宋代起已在“海上絲綢之路”留有痕跡,亦了解到中國古代航海事業及技術發展的演變過程。除此之外,同學們亦進一步認識了整個海底考古過程,由古沉船的發現、發掘、打撈、保存至展示等各個階段,深深體會到我國在古代造船及現今水下古蹟發掘的科技發展。『南海一號』是目前發現年代最早、船體最大、保存最完整的宋代貿易商船,博物館除展現了不同種類的出水文物外,亦設有水下考古現場發掘動態的演示,讓同學們對海上絲路的歷史及海底考古等方面加深了認識。
