Archaeologists unearth amazing fleet of ships

Archaeologists in Pisa have uncovered a fleet of 39 ancient ships, some complete with cargo and crew which were buried under 900 years of silt.

Many of the artefacts have been beautifully preserved, such as copper nails, ancient wood, terracotta jars, and skeletons.

Apparently the ships date from many centuries including before and after the Christian era, suggesting the wrecks happened at different times but in the same general area.

Full story at Newsweek.

@ Andrew

Yeah I was thinking something along the same lines. Perhaps a known (not known to them though) black spot in the ocean.

Do you think the Bermuda triangle is real? I've never seen evidence showing the actual measurable scientific evidence. Either way, finding 39 preserved ships will be great for historians learning more about that time period (periods).
