The extraterritorial transit ports phenomenon of China's ceramic trade in the 9th-10th centuries: Focusing on Southeast Asia

XIANG Kun-peng;The Palace Museum;  
The 9 th and 10 th centuries witnessed the first zenith of China's maritime foreign trade marked by the large scale export of porcelains. Two major trade routes were formed: one starting from the East China Sea, the Yellow Sea to Korea, Japan and other countries, and the other from the South China Sea to Southeast Asia, India and the Arab region, of the latter, Southeast Asia played an important role. Different academic opinions have been proposed regarding whether transit ports were used for China's porcelain exportation. By examining the remains of the three shipwrecks discovered in the Java Sea—the Belitung, the Intan, and the Cirebon—and the related archaeological data, this paper argues that during the early and middle parts of the 9 th century the exported porcelains were shipped from China directly to the destinations without any transits and that it was until the end of the 9 th century that transit ports, which were likely to be located in Geluo as documented in literature, were formed and used.
