A joint Albanian-American underwater archaeology project says it has found amphoras that are at least 2,500 years old off the Albanian coast, which might yield an ancient shipwreck.

The research vessel Hercules of the RPM Nautical Foundation said Friday they had found 22 containers on the bed of the Ionian Sea near the Karaburun peninsula.

Archaeologist Mateusz Polakowski said they believe the Corinthian A type amphoras date to between the 7th and 5th century B.C.

This video has some cool footage of the robotic arm of the ROV recovering fragile ceramics from the wreck site.
