An intact Greek boat, believed to be 2,400 years old, has been found at the bottom of the Black Sea - and is potentially the oldest intact shipwreck:

I wonder who has legal rights to it. Hmm.

Interesting age. Wonder if it's from before or after the Persian War.

I saw this and have looked around for more info but found very little. I'd be interested in knowing how it's so well preserved. Presumably practically anaerobic conditions and very still water.
