Thousands of relics have been found so far in the month-long underwater archaeological probe of "Nan'ao One" off the coast of southern China. On Monday, archaeologists began to retrieve artifacts from inside the ship.

Due to strong winds and high waves, access to the site of the wreck was extremely difficult. But despite difficulties, five archaeologists reached the site 25 meters below the surface. It took the crew just ten minutes to remove the first batch of items from inside the ship. The relics were then brought to the surface where they were classified immediately.
