    The field of marine archeology is quite fascinating. Usually old ships like this are found on the bottom and scuba divers and submersibles have to painstakingly measure each part of the ship. From there, it can either be reassembled or digitally reproduced in 3D.

    In this case, the entire ship was found in oxygen depraved water so it was preserved very well. It is quite fascinating to say the least and we hope to learn more about the history of this ship!
