During construction work, Florida Department of Transportation specialists accidentally discovered a boat built in the 1800s, buried at a depth of 2.5 m underground. She was found in the city of St. Augustine, which is known to many as the Ancient City, reports Auto Mail.ru.
Road workers discovered the boat while installing drainage.
Archaeologists believe that the 9-meter vessel was probably built near the city’s waterfront.
Also found on board the boat were fragments of two shoes, part of an oil lamp and several coins. It is noteworthy that one of them dates back to 1869.
All objects from the excavation site were photographed, then the photographs were entered into a special catalogue. The finds are currently in a wet storage tank in St. Louis.
Earlier, the Polish agency PAP reported that archaeologists in the city of Sociebin in the Podkarpackie Voivodeship discovered a unique grave of a Scythian warrior.
According to archaeologist Marcin Burghardt, the find is unique not only for Poland, but also for neighboring countries in the region.
