‘Historic’ ship sunk in the sea 1200 years ago today, a sea treasure found in Israel!


Ancient ship found in Israel

The discovery of an ancient ship off the coast of Israel is great news for explorers, archaeologists and the world. Evidence has been obtained from this ship that, even after the Islamic conquest of this land, traders continued to come to Israel. This ship was loaded with cargo. It is an event around a time when the largely Christian Byzantine Empire was losing its hold on this region of the Eastern Mediterranean and Islamic rule was rising.

This wreck of the ship dates back to the Byzantine Empire. Deborah Siwickel, a marine archaeologist at the University of Haifa, said: ‘The discovery of a 7th or 8th century A.D. confirms that trade with the rest of the Mediterranean continued despite the religious division. The amazing storm caused the huge ship to sink in the water. Or maybe it was because of an inexperienced captain that a ship made of strong pine and walnut trees and loaded with cargo sank in the shallow waters of the sea.

According to the information, the sand was removed due to a storm and the sunken ship was visible. A piece of wood was spotted by two amateur divers in the Magan Michael area. When he tried to remove it, he did not remove it. After removing some sand, it was found that it was a ship, after which he informed the officials. After 8 excavations, Deborah Siwickel’s team discovered that it is 20 meters long and 5 meters wide. In a way, the wreckage of the ship was seen as a wooden skeleton.

About 1.5 meters of sand was cleaned through an underwater vacuum. Researchers have found more than 200 jugs filled with dishes from the Mediterranean, including fish sauce, olives, dates and figs. Ropes, skeletons of six rats, wooden combs were also found on the ship. Civikel said that more care is needed in this work. The items received seem to be associated with the Byzantine Empire. There it is written in Arabic on some. The researchers hope that the ship will be put to the public after the discovery. Well the history books, they usually tell us that there was no international commerce in the Mediterranean at that time. It was almost closed. But with the discovery of this ship, many things related to history will become clear.
