18th Century Ship Found at World Trade Center Site

As the construction crews in New York City were excavating the World Trade Site they came across a major historical find. Buried far below street level, workers uncovered the remnants of a wooden hull which appears to date back to the 1700s. As soon as the discovery was verified, archaeologists scrambled from around the area to take measurements and gather data before the wood deteriorates now that it is exposed. It has only been a couple days at this time so the team of archaeologists are hesitant to identify what they have found or why it is there. It will be interesting to see what they find and what we can learn about our past.
