299 a_bleeding_sandwich For those who don't have time to read or research, the Black sea has a particularity where the top layer of water does no mix with the bottom layer, resulting in a deprivation of oxygen (anoxic water) where bacterium and other organism that normally "eat" shipwrecks are less abundant... The anoxic layer therefore acts as a natural preservative and makes it possible to find ancient shipwrecks that would have normally disappeared elsewhere. **this is simplified to the max, not intended to be a PHD thesis**
11 G_Wash1776 Will they be attempting to raise the ships, or is that too risky?

6 adam_demamps_wingman Amazing story. There was a 1976 book that predicted the dead zone of the Black Sea would hold perfectly preserved ships. >In a 1976 book titled Deep Water, Ancient Ships, ocean explorer Willard Bascom theorized that low oxygen levels below 650 feet in the Black Sea would exclude wood-boring organisms that consume wooden wrecks in shallower water. He even predicted that the "perfect ship" would be found sitting upright on the sea bottom, its mast still upright. >Ballard's 2000 expedition found just such a ship, and three others, less well-preserved. Carbon dating linked them all to the Roman or Byzantine periods, between the 4th and 6th centuries. The three less-intact ships, found just 330 feet down, spilled their cargoes, packed in clay jugs called amphorae. But the deep-water wreck's secrets would have to be excavated.
17 Lutefisk_Mafia So... How many days do you think it will be before we start seeing pictures of a shirtless Putin supposedly recovering priceless artifacts from said ships?
