Turkish researchers have discovered a 4,000 year-old shipwreck in Marmaris Hisönü Gulf in the Mediterranean, as part of an ongoing project carried out by Dokuz Eylül University’s Marine Sciences Institute since 2007.
Professor Abdurrahman Harun Özdaş, from Dokuz Eylül University said that the 4,000 year-old shipwreck is the oldest of its kind to be found in Turkey.
The shipwreck is thought to be used for trading purposes and is from the Minoan Civilization, which existed around 3650 to 1400 BCE.
It was also reported that the project found over 20 submerged harbors and architectural remains, 25 berthages and over 400 anchors dating from the Bronze Age to the Ottoman period. (source)
