Synopsis by Alice Day
A marine geologist and an archaeologist explore the Mediterranean, and discover two shipwrecks, the oldest ever found. The ships originated in Phoenicia, burdened with their cargo of wine. Whether their fate was sealed by storms, pirates, or worse will never be known. National Geographic goes a thousand feet underwater for National Geographic Video: Lost Ships of the Mediterranean, and documents the uncovering of ceramic amphoras, still upright after 3,000 years of submersion. The cooking pots of the lost crews are preserved, along with other remarkable artifacts from the Iron Age.
