So many shipwrecks!

MARINE ARCHAEOLOGY: 32 haunting shipwrecks from the ancient world. Shipwrecks can reveal information about traded goods and even which rituals people partook in centuries ago. Here's a look at shipwrecks from ancient times found around the world (Owen Jarus, Live Science).

The list includes shipwrecks found in or around Israel, and Phoenician and Punic shipwrecks. Also, the Antikythera shipwreck. Most of those, and more, have coverage in the PaleoJudaica archives.
