In search of the Spanish ship sunk in the end of the world

A team of archaeologists astro-Bulgarian has announced on Tuesday the discovery of a merchant ship of Greek that was shipwrecked for more than 2,400 years. It is very likely that this boat is the boat intact oldest in the world.

The experts of the so-called Archaeological Project Maritime Black Sea (MAP in English) spotted the spacecraft during an observation of an area of 2,000 square kilometres in the Black sea.

A small piece of the ship was taken as a sample to be subjected to a test of carbon per part of the English University of Southampton, which established that data very probably about 400 years before Christ.

The project, reported today that archaeologists were three years combing the depths of the sea with a few cameras for deep-water and remote-controlled, capable of taking high-definition images from a distance of two miles under the sea.

The rudder and rowing benches remain intact, according to the experts, whose works of exploration have allowed to find more than 60 boats in the last few years, among them the roman ships.

"It's like another world," said Helen Farr, a part of the expedition team, to the BBC.

"When the ROV (operated vehicle remote control) down through a column of water and you can see this boat in the depth, so perfectly preserved, you feel as if you transportaras at the time," wrote Farr in describing the moment in which this merchant Greek was found.

"Is preserved, that is for sure. Not deteriorating and is unlikely to attract hunters," he added.

This merchant, of 23 meters, is one of several sought-after in the Mediterranean and on the coasts of the Black sea.

it Is estimated that the boat is in the year 480.C. and it is still unknown what was their burden, according to archaeologists, who admitted to needing more funding to go back to the place for further investigation.

"As archaeologists, we are interested in what you can bring on the technology, trade and movement in the area" at that time, according to the expert.

The conservation of this piece responds to the conditions of the sea water, free of oxygen, which allows to preserve organic material for thousands of years, according to the group.

the principal investigator of The project MAP, Jon Adams, has shown to be amazed by the finding of the piece.

"A boat that has survived intact from the classical period, lying under a layer of water of two miles, is something that I never would have thought possible," stressed the scientist.

"This is going to change our way of understanding the construction and navigation maritime in the ancient world", he added.

The archaeologists believe that the vessel is similar to that represented in the well-known vase of the Siren preserved in the British Museum, a ceramic that depicts Ulysses tied to the mast of his ship while it resists the deadly attraction of the song of the sirens.

Other ancient ships found up to now, more than 3,000 years of antiquity, corresponded only to a few fragments, according to these experts, who have stressed that this merchant may provide information about the journeys made by the Greek merchants.

according To the MAP, the more likely it is that the merchant ship it sank because of a storm and to have a crew of between 15 and 25 people.

archaeologists puntualizaron who have no intention of taking it out of the bottom of the sea because that would be extremely costly to do so.

The ceo of the project, Ed Parker, he recalled that some of the boats found by the MAP "have only been seen -until now - in murals and mosaics."
