Underwater archaeologists recently discovered a 2,000-year-old skeleton on a famous shipwreck off the tiny Greek island of Antikythera, according to the scientific journal Nature.
The wreck was the first ever investigated by archaeologists after it was originally found by sponge divers in 1900, Nature reported. At the time, the most incredible find on the wreckage of the merchant ship was the “Antikythera mechanism,” a sophisticated clockwork device that models the motions of the sun, moon and planets.
But this skeleton could be an even more incredible find for scientists, who are excited about the possibility of a first-ever DNA analysis of an ancient shipwreck victim.
