Archeologists Examine Novgorod Ship Vessel Sunk in Gulf of Finland Over 300 Years Ago

Experts of the underwater archeological society "Memory of the Baltic Sea" have started to investigate the Novgorod merchant vessel, which had sunk in Gulf of Finland in the 16th -17th centuries, the head of expedition Konstantin Shopotov informed RIA Novosti on Monday.
      He emphasized the importance of studying the ship in winter, when water in the gulf is transparent. "Ice diving is very difficult, but it gives very bright picture, whereas during summer visibility in waters of Gulf of Finland is insufficient, - the archeologist says.
      The discovered ship is a flat-bottomed sailing and rowing vessel of the 11th -18th centuries used for transportation of people and cargoes. "It is a creation by Ladoga ship builders. The vessel had been transporting some cargo - we found on it a limestone, which had most likely been intended for trade", - Konstantin Shopotov said.
