In the Black sea found an ancient ship

Greek Trading Ship More Than 2,400 Years Old Found Intact In Black Sea

While animals and bacteria would usually decompose a wooden shipwreck's remains within centuries, the 75-foot-long Greek shipwreck lay undisturbed for more than 2,400 years, researchers with the Black Sea Maritime Archaeology Project said Tuesday.

The Black Sea Maritime Archaeology Project (Black Sea MAP) spent three years surveying some 770 square miles of Atlantic Ocean seabed, between Eastern Europe and Western Asia.

"A ship, surviving intact, from the Classical world, lying in [more than 1 mile] of water, is something I would never have believed possible", Black Sea MAP principal investigator and University of Southampton professor Jon Adams said in a statement.

A Greek merchant ship dating back more than 2400 years has been found lying on its side off the Bulgarian coast.

The Black Sea Maritime Archaeology Project involves an worldwide team led by the University of Southampton's Centre for Maritime Archaeology.

The vase depicts a scene from The Odyssey, in which Odysseus is strapped to the mast as he passes the deadly sirens.

That came after teams had been contacting the Raiders about a deal since the offseason, and after the aforementioned Eagles offer. But we also have to give Gruden and McKenzie a tip of the cap for their patience in getting the deal they wanted.

The reason the ship's wood was so well preserved: the oxygen-less huge depths where the wreck was found.

They found over 60 shipwrecks, varying in age from a 17th century Cossack raiding fleet to the Greek trading vessel, as well as Roman trading vessels complete with amphorae-the iconic Roman vases. Numerous colonial and commercial activities of ancient Greece and Rome, and of the Byzantine Empire, centred on the Black Sea.

"This represents an unbroken pattern of trade and exchange, warfare and communication that reaches back into prehistory, and because of the anoxic conditions of the Black Sea - the lack of oxygen - below a certain depth, some of the wrecks survive in incredible condition, "researchers wrote in a news release. We're talking about still preserved ropes, shipwrecks that literally look as if they had sunk yesterday", Garbov said".

The team also compiled a 3D image of the ancient ship with the ROVs, the BBC reports.

As Prof Adams says: "This assemblage must comprise one of the finest underwater museums of ships and seafaring in the world".

The ship, laying more than a mile below the surface of the Black Sea, appears to be of the same construction.
