Divers find the “Titanic of the ancient world” at the bottom of the Mediterranean

Archaeologists Have Discovered the “Titanic of the Ancient World” in Greece

Return to Antikythera

Here is something that caught my attention. More than 100 years ago, a group of Greek sponge divers came upon some strange artifacts in the waters off the coast of Antikythera, a remote Mediterranean island. Since then, there have been periodic surveys of the site. Last week, divers and archaeologists wrapped up the biggest excavation yet, and the findings are incredible.

The literal treasure ship dates back to 50 or 60 BC
