Archaeologists Find Ancient Roman Shipwrecks

Off the coast of Ventotene in the Mediterranean Archaeologists have found 5 Ancient Roman Shipwrecks which have been found.  The ships themselves are between 1,600 and 1,900 years old.

The wreckage and their contents have been discovered in grand condition.  They established that the ships never actually capsized.   The wrecks were in much deeper waters away from strong destructive currents,laden with contents  found in exactly in the same positions as when the ships originally set off.

The largest wreck measures more than 65 feet.  A handful of objects were taken out to be studied and will be put on display in Ventotene.
