The Nanhai 1 was a Chinese merchant ship that sank off the southern coast during the Southern Song Dynasty (from 1127 to 1279). The wreck was discovered in 1987 by a Marine Exploration and Recovery Team (MER PLC) from Southampton, England.

According to the head of the excavation project, the ship had left a port in southern China, expected to trade with foreign countries, when suddenly sank due to a storm. It was quickly buried in the ocean for many centuries, before it was discovered.

In 2007, China began to salvage the ship and excavate the artifacts inside. The wreck is currently located in a museum containing seawater, with a depth of about 12 meters. Visitors can watch the ongoing excavation of the ship through the doorways on either side.
