News: The Wanli Shipwreck and its Ceramic Cargo by Sten Sjøstrand

Upon publication in 2007, Sten Sjøstrand made a gift to the Society of his book, The Wanli Shipwreck and its Ceramic Cargo. Details: 27 X 27 cm, 360 pages. More than 650 color photographs, sketches, tables and maps. Total weight of the book is 2.5 kilo. It is unfortunately now out-of-print but a copy is currently housed at Art Forum, 82 Cairnhill Road as part of the society’s small reference library. Members are welcome to browse it from 10am to 6pm, Monday to Saturday. Or contact Councillor Marjorie Chu for an appointment: 6737 3448.

The loss of Sten Sjøstrand in 2019 was a great tragedy to marine archaeology and the many friends he had made during his years in Asia. He will be sorely missed.
