The Hoi An Wreck lies 22 miles off the coast of central Vietnam in the South China Sea; in typoon area known as "Dragon Sea"
The ship was carrying a large cargo of Vietnamese ceramics from the mid- to late-15th century. The provenance of the pieces was known to be the kilns of the Red River Delta (such as Chu Dau) because excavations in the region had been ongoing since their discovery in 1983. The only pieces remaining at the kiln sites were wasters (pieces that had fused; collapsed or exploded in the firing process). Intact examples of the wares produced were rare; since all were exported. When the wreck was found there was excitement among collectors and archaeologists; for it promised the first cargo consisting solely of Vietnamese wares
