Very Old Wrecks – level 3

31-10-2018 07:00

People found a never-before-seen shipwreck off the coast of Bulgaria in the Black Sea. Scientists believe that one of the wrecks is a 2,400-year-old Greek trading vessel.

Edward Price from the Black Sea Maritime Archaeology Project said that there are ships at the bottom of the ocean that people have never seen; we have only seen them in paintings, murals and books.

The oxygen-free environment means that the wrecks are extremely well preserved, and the recent findings led to their own documentary project at the British Museum.

Difficult words: vessel (a ship or large a boat), mural (a painting on the surface of a wall).
