Ancient Sailing Vessel from Taman Becomes Major Archaeological Discovery in Russia

The Archeology Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences summed up results of 2012.

Scientists of the Russian Academy of Sciences have included the ancient sailing vessel found in the Temryuk District of Kuban into the list of the major archaeological discoveries of last year. 

Let's remind, scientists found a sunken an old ship at the bottom of the Gulf of Taman. The ancient vessel dates back to the 8th-9th centuries.

The unique find was discovered by submariners of Fanagoria expedition in August, 2012.

Under a one-and-a-half-meter layer of sand they found well preserved remains of an ancient ship, which once used to stand in the Fanagoria bay.

After clearing of the boards and bottom, archeologists found out that its length made 15 m and width made 3 m.  Having investigated the find, archeologists drew a conclusion that it had been a single-masted trade sailing vessel with two lateral wheels. 

On ship fragments archeologists found fire traces. It was probably fire that became the reason of the vessel crash. Scientists plan to lift the sailing vessel fragments on the water surface during a new expedition.
