Archaeologists working at the World Trade Centre site in New York have found the remains of a wooden ship apparently buried there more than 200 years ago.
The remains of the 30ft length of a wood-hulled vessel were found when workers excavating the site, where a new World Trade Centre is being built, hit a row of wood timbers, The New York Times reported.
“They were so perfectly contoured that they were clearly part of a ship,” said archaeologist A. Michael Pappalardo.
The archaeologists have been working on the site – scene of the 9/11 terror attacks in 2001 – to document historical material uncovered during construction.
