15th century Spanish shipwreck found in Greece

Arcaheologists are intrigued by the discovery of a 15th century Spanish shipwreck off the coast of Zakynthos, Greece. The 2014 underwater explorations of the site have revealed enough of the ship’s wooden frame to allow study of "the transitional art of shipbuilding during the 15th and 16th centuries." (photo)

Evidence on the ship points to its origins as part of the Spanish navy during the reign of Philip II, and dating it to the era shortly after the Battle of Naupactus. UNESCO has recommended that the ship not be lifted, to preserve what remains of the wreck.
