The Lost Dhow, Aga Khan Museum

The Lost Dhow is based on the cargo recovered from a wrecked ninth-century Arab trading ship discovered off the coast of Belitung Island, Indonesia, in 1998. The exhibit gives us a glimpse into the quantity and quality of the goods traded on the Maritime Silk Route and the cosmopolitan nature of the crews and traders in the ninth century long before the first western European ships dropped anchor in China.
