Old wreck is found - level 2

Old wreck is found - level 2

10-12-2015 15:00

People found the wreckage of a ship in Columbian waters. The ship was Spanish and it sank in 1708. Around 600 people died in the shipwreck.

People think that thousands of emeralds, gold and silver coins are in the wreckage. So far, however, sonar only showed us the bronze cannons in the ship. Excavation and scientific tests on the wreck will continue.

We do not know if people will bring parts of the wreckage to dry land.

Difficult words: wreckage (parts of something destroyed), emerald (a bright green stone), sonar (a machine that finds things under the water), excavation (digging, looking for things).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
