Recently, "The History of Ningbo Port", part of Research Series of Port Museum of China, was officially published by Ningbo Press. It is an important academic achievement to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the reform and opening up. The other day, experts and scholars from Fudan University, Nanjing University, Ningbo University, the Ningbo branch of national underwater cultural heritage protection base and the Quanzhou maritime traffic history museum participated in the publication symposium.

The book collects and catalogues more than 500 ancient maps of the western people since the Renaissance, most of which are the ancient maps dating back to the sixteenth Century until the nineteenth Century. The collections reflect the evolutionary history of how western people developed geographic cognition to Ningbo after the beginning of the great geographical discovery. The author, Shuiyin, is a Ningbo cultural scholar and historian.

The experts who attended the symposium thought that the work focuses on the introduction of the geographical picture of Ningbo in a view of globalization, which is of innovative significance for its new research perspective, argument, material and data.

The Port Museum of China, themed in ports, regarding port history research as its academic focus, has made great efforts to build a wide and open academic platform through special research, library journals and seminars. The publication of "The History and Geography of Ningbo Port" excavates evolution rules in the historical civilization of ancient Ningbo port and its profound history of overseas exchange, which shows a persisting aspiration in exploring the port civilization and spreading marine culture forged ahead by the museum and the general public
