A large number of blue and white porcelain objects were found in the mysterious "Chinese Bermuda Triangle" waters of the Poyang Lake Laoyemiao after a month-long cultural relic exploration in this area, according to Jiangxi's Institute of Archaeology.

The porcelain, which probably dates back to the mid-to-late Ming dynasty, together with some copy celadon of Longquan kilns were mainly exports of Jindezhen, said Xiao Fabiao, leader of the exploration group. He revealed that debris also signals the location of the sunken ship.

Known as "China's Bermuda Triangle," this 24-kilometer stretch of Laoyemiao waters located in Duchang County of Jiangxi province are long and narrow waters connecting the Gan River and Poyang Lake, China's biggest fresh water lake. Famous for rushing waters and powerful waves, the waters are a dangerous area where shipwrecks frequently take place.
