A row of amphoraejars used for shipping by ancient Greeks and Romansline the
bottom of the Black Sea at a site 275 feet (84 meters) down. The pile of amphorae was all that was
left of an ancient shipwreck, discovered in summer 2002 on an expedition organized by
National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Robert Ballard. New radiocarbon tests show
the amphorae to date between the fifth and third centuries B.C.
