Well bro, this is Indian Defense Forum so less here.Freaking lies from another Chini troll
Philippine ancestors have been Sailing and fishing in the SCS long before the Chinis came!!!MANILA, PHILIPPINES MANILA, Philippines (AP) _ Philippine archaeologists have discovered granite stones from a tomb, cannons and other artifacts in an ancient shipwreck in the South China Sea's disputed Spratly Islands.
In addition, nearly 5,000 Chinese and Thai porcelains have been recovered from a separate 15th century Chinese junk discovered off the western Philippine province of Palawan.
Archaeologists described both as important finds.
Eusebio Dizon, chief of the National Museum's underwater archaeology department, said Tuesday that Filipino archaeologists and French divers, acting on a tip from fishermen, discovered a shipwreck on a coral reef about six miles off Pag-asa Island in the Spratlys.
A recovery team retrieved around 1,000 granite stones from a tomb, cannons and iron musket balls from the still unidentified wooden ship, found at a depth of 30 feet.
Some of the stones were engraved with what appeared to be Hindu markings and drawings of dancing women, according to a museum official who spoke on condition of anonymity. One stone was engraved with the numbers 1754, but it was unclear whether that referred to the date.
The stones may have been stolen from a tomb in Asia to be smuggled into Europe, Dizon said.
Pag-asa is the biggest of eight islands occupied by Philippine troops in the Spratlys, a chain of islands, atolls and reefs claimed by the Philippines, China and four other countries.
In the other find, museum officials said they have recovered nearly 5,000 prized porcelain plates, jars and bowls from a Chinese junk that sank four miles off Calauit Island at the northern tip of Palawan.
The artifacts were from the late Ming period during the 15th and 16th centuries.
Archaeologists are still trying to determine when the Chinese junk sank, but it is believed to be older than the Spanish galleons that plied the busy Manila-Acapulco trade route run by Spain in the 16th century.
Filipino archaeologists were led to the wreckage, lying on a shoal at a depth of 160 feet, by the coast guard, which found fishermen looting the site early this year.
The largest sailing vessel of its kind yet discovered is being unearthed in Butuan City in Mindanao, and it promises to rewrite Philippine maritime history as we know it.

The first wooden watercraft excavated in Southeast Asia, the Balangay is only found in the Philippines where a flotilla of such prehistoric wooden boat exists throughout the world. Nine specimens were discovered in 1976 in Butuan City, Agusan Del Norte, Mindanao and 3 of which have been excavated. Examination and extensive investigation reveals that the extant boats found in the excavation site date back to 320, 990 and 1250 AD.
It has long been established that Filipinos traveled across Southeast Asia as early as the 10th century, reaching as far as Champa – what is now the eastern coast of Vietnam – in groups of balangays.
These groups or flotillas have always been thought to consist of similarly-sized small vessels, an idea perpetuated by the term "barangay" – the smallest administrative division of the present-day Philippine government.
But, according to Bolunia, this new discovery suggests that these may just have been support vessels for a much larger main boat, where trade goods and other supplies were likely to have been held for safekeeping.
The discovery also suggests that seafaring Filipinos were much more organized and centralized than previously thought.

Don't worry about that. Vietnam had been a part of China during the past 2000 years, of course it was no problem to share the south China sea together with you before.But since Vietnam has separated from China now, it doesn't mean all of islands of China in this region now belongs to Vietnam , right? Vietnamese now is acting too aggressive and greedy , they occupied most of islands in south China Sea by all means ,then sold those region to western oil companies and earned trillions of dollars from it. Yet China has not drilled any oil wells in South China Sea so far, It is not because China has no ability to do it but China doesn't want to increase the tension and prefer to keep the peace around this region .No can you please put forward and announce to the world that China is now Claiming Vietnam
