From nbcnews.com:

Quote

Discovery News' Rossella Lorenzi reports that the ship sank on a trade route between Spain and central Italy with a cargo of more than 200 jars, known as amphorae. Some of the jars were caught in fishing nets, which led to the underwater search. Tests indicated that the jars contained pickled fish, grain, wine and oil.

If the wine is still there in the amphora. will it be good to drink?

Probably not, but it might be okay to put it on Fish and Chips.

For the non-Brits - Fish and Chips is a British meal consisting of Fish and Chips, often served in paper with salt and vinegar for flavouring.

I am reading a book on the ancient Celts and Roman. I'm at the part about Caesar, so this really interesting to me.

It would not be the first find of that kind nor the only one.

Somebody has to invent a "reach through" for the internet, could give you some from my trees (no pesticides, no insecticides, no artificial fertilizer)
