Around 1490 a junk loaded with fine Vietnamese pottery sank in the South China Sea. The hoard was named after the nearby town of Faifo, today known as Hoi An. The porcelain recovered came from the Hai Duong province, modern North Vietnam, known as the biggest production centre of ceramic and porcelain in Medieval Vietnam.  Many thousands of pieces of pottery have been recovered from the Hoi An shipwreck, making it one of the greatest recoveries of sunken treasure of all time.
