14th Century Norwegian Shipwreck Well Preserved

The remains of a 14th century ship, discovered 50 years ago in the Skien River of Norway, are the focus of a new archaeological study.

Divers working in the Skien River near Telemark, Norway were impressed with the condition of a rare medieval wooden ship dating to the 14th century. Discovered in 1953, the Bølevraket was thought to have been mostly destroyed and forgotten, but archaeologists now feel that it might just be a rare treasure.
