SEOUL -- Ancient vessels assumed to be 14th-century Korean trade boats have been found in an eastern Chinese port, a discovery that will help retrace the history of marine exchanges between Korea and China from that era, archaeologists involved in the find said Monday.
They are the first Korean ancient vessels found overseas and stand as evidence that Koreans engaged in international trade before they curbed such exchanges centuries later, said the archaeologists of the National Maritime Museum.
