Amazing ancient shipwreck found in the Black Sea

This is quite amazing, truly;  a shipwreck in the Black Sea that is stunningly well-preserved.

The reason that it is so well preserved (for those of you who aren't aware of it) is that below the surface of the Black Sea is anoxic, meaning that there isn't any oxygen.  That severely limits the activity of bacteria that would normally eat up the woody parts of a ship.
