Archaeologists hope to recover medieval shipwreck in the Danube

The blue Danube's not-very-blue waters are a hindrance to Hungarian archaeologists seeking to investigate a newly-discovered medieval shipwreck in the river 18 miles north of Budapest. The Danube connected much of Europe in the Middle Ages, but was hazardous to navigate.

The 40-foot long, 10-foot wide ship is currently buried in the sand and silt of the river bottom. Archaeologists hope that some of its cargo will be discovered buired as well.
