Shipwreck found in Boston construction site
It was a typical day at work for construction crews in Boston. They were digging on a lot of land planned for a 400,000-square-foot office building, but little did they know they were about to unearth a historic find: the remains off a 50-foot wooden ship from the mid- to late 1800s. "This is the first shipwreck that I know of in Boston discovered in filled land," city archaeologist Joe Bagley told CNN affiliate WBZ. "This is the largest and most significant by far."
The Skanska construction crew stumbled across the discovery in the Seaport District last week and immediately halted construction.
