Byzantine Port Found

"Like Romans, Athenians and other residents of the world's great historic cities, the residents of Istanbul can hardly put a shovel in the ground without digging up something important." Archaelogists working on the site of a new subway station believe they have found a port from Byzantine times.

They are calling their find "the port of Theodosius" after the Emperor, but so far the find is not dated to a specific reign. The site includes a number of sunken ships that appear to have been destroyed in port by a storm.
