It seems this thread needs some news - I will update it with some medieval and ancient history news:

800-year-old Chinese ship now on display in a museum - A major underwater museum housing an 800-year-old merchant ship opened to the public in China this week. The 30 meter wooden vessel, named Nanhai No 1, or South China Sea No 1, lies in a "crystal palace" made of glass inside the Maritime Silk Road Museum. See the article at http://medievalnews.blogspot.com/2009/12/800-year-old-chinese-ship-now-on.html

Arab coin dating back to the year 805 found in Norway - Archaeologists in Norway say an ancient Islamic coin dating back to 805 AD was found just west of Oslo earlier this year. Houshang Khazaei, who is a researcher at the University of Oslo, said that the coin is an issue of Abbasid Caliph Harun al-Rashid, who ruled from 786 and 809 A.D.
