Very Old Wrecks – level 2

31-10-2018 07:00

Scientists found ancient shipwrecks at the bottom of the Black Sea off of Bulgaria, and they believe that one of the wrecks is 2,400 years old and was a Greek trading vessel.

The shipwrecks were in such deep water that there is no oxygen, and this means they are very well-preserved. This is the first time people can have a look at ships this old. Before, we could only see them in books or in paintings.

Difficult words: ancient (very old), vessel (a ship or large boat), well-preserved (not destroyed).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
