Unrecorded ancient shipwreck found in Black Sea

An expedition of marine archaeology, called the Black Sea Maritime Archaeological Project, has found ships used in antiquity at the bottom of the Black Sea. According to reports, nobody has seen or registered those ships before.

In June, Bulgaria gave permission to the Norwegian research vessel Havila Subsea to enter the country’s territorial waters from August to October. “We have seen many shipwrecks, but we rarely see such a thing with its entire structure. But here in the Black Sea the environment is such that much has been preserved, from the structure of the ship and its cargo.”
