Ancient Roman Shipwreck Found

20 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

From nbcnews.com:

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.

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.

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)

What would they do with the preserved food? You really can't put it into a museum and sure as hell can not eat it lol.. So I am curious for perhaps a follow up on what will happen... Also, is it just me, or does the reporter doing this segment just seem like he is A) either not interested, or B) reading completley off a peice of paper, or C) on the late late news channel of NBC or of course D) just doesn't care haha.. I watch NBC news and I've never heard anything like that (his voice that is, to monotone)

In one of his books written in the 1960s or 70s, Jacques Cousteau writes of his diving team finding an intact amphora containing ancient wine.

As Frenchmen, they felt they had a duty to sample it.

He said it was terrible, and had spoiled during its centuries on the sea floor. I don't recall whether it was vinegary, or just horrid tasting.
