It seems hard to believe, but it’s true. Greek civilization has come back to life thanks to one of the most shocking discoveries in history. A group of astro-Bulgarian archaeologists has located a Greek merchant ship that sank 2,400 years ago. It is located at a depth of 1,500 meters and only a few kilometers from the coast of Bulgaria.
The finding was, in a way, accidental. The research team of The Black Sea Maritime Archaeology Project (Black Sea MAP) carried out an observation of the bottom of the Black Sea with the intention of getting to know in depth the effects of climate change in the area. The surprise of encountering this shipwreck was outstanding even for its discoverers.
