In 2012, a Roman trading ship dating back to the times of the Caesars was discovered off the coast of Italy. The ship was apparently in such good shape that some of the food was still preserved inside the storage jars. Police divers found the ship preserved within a layers of mud at a depth of 230 feet in water near Genoa.
The ship sank on it's trade route between Spain and Italy with more than 200 jars of amphorae. The jars contained pickled fish, grain, wine, and oil. Some of the jars were picked up by fishing nets, which is what got the police divers searching to begin with.
Police continued to guard the site while archeologists figured out what to do with the find. The find dates back more approximately between the 1st and 2nd centuries B.C. When Julius Caesar and his imperial heirs held power in Rome.
