Midievil Shipwrecks from the Black Sea

One of Greatest coups in Archaeology History

This may not appeal to everyone, but this is an amazing find with more than forty wrecked ships dating back over a millennium from the Byzantine to the Ottoman empires.  (the ninth to the nineteenth centuries) Imagine that! Pretty Exciting stuff.  

Below are two links to the NY Times article and pictures and a 2nd one with still more or different photos.  Enjoy
