A video of a shipwreck from 1200 years ago that was discovered off Israel’s coast has gone viral on social media.

Off the coast of Maagan Michael, an Israeli seaside town, a ship that went down more than 1200 years ago has been discovered.

Two newbie divers found the vessel’s wreckage and informed the appropriate authorities of their find.

The boat was a commerce ship, according to academics at the University of Haifa who oversaw the examination of the archaeological site. They assert that it was constructed of spruce and walnut trees.

“The largest shipwreck we have ever discovered, it is around 20 meters long and 5 meters high, making it a rather remarkable discovery. Furthermore, due to its age.” According to Deborah Cvikel, director of the excavation and a maritime archaeologist at the University of Haifa, “the ship is dated between the 7th centuries and VIII CE, which is when there was a change from Byzantine to Islamic rule in the region.

In addition to the boat, researchers found almost 200 amphorae, a sort of container for storing consumer goods, filled with a variety of foods from the Mediterranean diet, including fish sauce, olives, dates, and figs. Additionally, the crew discovered items on the deck that demonstrate the ship made ports in Cyprus, Egypt, Turkey, and possibly even off the coast of North Africa.

Additionally, the researchers discovered animal remains, including six mice and the remnants of insects, as well as navigational aids like ropes and personal objects like wooden combs. The Byzantine Christian church’s emblems could be seen on some of the shipments, while Arabic writing could be seen on others.

On Twitter, you may find the widely shared video of the shipwreck discovered 1200 years ago off the coast of Israel.
