The Antikythera wreck is a Roman-era shipwreck dating from around 60 BCE that resides on the seabed northwest of Crete. It’s best known as the shipwreck that held the corroded remains of a device believed to be the world's oldest known analog computer, the Antikythera mechanism.

The wreck was first discovered by sponge divers in 1900, but ongoing archaeological projects have continued to reveal a number of intriguing finds. 

Today, marine archaeologists announced the results of an “extremely successful” expedition that started with the removal of a large rock, allowing access to a previously unexplored part of the shipwreck.
