Chapter 5 examines the material culture of itinerancy and the diplomatic affordances it now offers within a geopolitics of Eurasian connectivity. Ceramics illustrate how Belt and Road imbues objects with particular values, even diplomatic qualities, as they are salvaged, displayed, and moved between exhibitions. The example of the Belitung shipwreck, its controversial salvage operation, and the collaboration between Oman and Singapore to reproduce the original ship are signposts to future trends in maritime heritage diplomacy. The chapter concludes by anticipating how a growth in interest in the Silk Roads in China will affect the global trade in trafficked antiquities.
