News announced today...a Greek trading vessel from 400BC has been found in the Black Sea off the coast of Bulgaria at a depth of 2km by the Black Sea Marine Archaeology Project, preserved by the anoxic environment. Twenty three metres long... like the hippoi of the Phoenicians, the Straits of Gibraltar would have posed no problem to exploration and trade with the UK and Ireland. A film of the discovery is premiereing at the British Museum today which I assume will be on telly at some point, and there's a sample vid online too. Fascinating and illuminating.
