Marine archaeologists have discovered a 2,000-year-old shipwreck in the waters between the Cap Corse peninsula of France and Italy’s Capraia Island and have recovered thousands of pieces of Roman glassware from it. The Roman vessel lies at a depth of 1,148 feet and was first discovered in 2012. This summer, a team from Fance and Italy used two remotely operated vehicles (ROV’s) to scan the wreck and recover artifacts. A large collection of perfectly-preserved glass vessels, including cups, bowls, bottles, and plates was successfully brought to the surface, as well as blocks of raw glass. Archaeologists believe the ship sunk sometime at the end of the first century or beginning of the second century AD. They hope to learn more about maritime trade in the Mediterranean region 2000 years ago, as well as better understand the production of Roman glassware by studying the artifacts.
