Archeologists Finds Thousand Year-Old Ship

 Archeologists have found an ancient ship in the coastal waters of Fanagoria (Krasnodar Territory). 

      Experts argue that it is a Byzantine trading sailing vessel. The wooden ship is around 1 thousand years old. Now the find is under water and it is impossible to salvage it yet because of the risk of it falling apart. 

      The ship is 15 meters long and three meters wide. Now historians study what was kept inside the ship – a jug, an amphora, and some ceramics splinters. The archeologists’ special pride is a red basin harbouring fragments of the ship, which one did not have to tear off, since they dropped out of the entire construction over time.
