Researchers testing equipment in the Gulf of Mexico inadvertently discovered the 200-year-old wreckage of a ship earlier this month. Evidence from the wreck suggests it’s sailors may have come to a fiery end.

The team aboard the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)’s Okeanos Explorer found the impressive wreck when they were testing a remotely operated vehicle about 160 miles off the shore, The Charlottesville Observer reported.

A newly discovered shipwreck in the Gulf of Mexico may have originally gone down 200 years ago. The shipwreck was discovered 200 miles (321 kilometers) off the Gulf Coast in more than 4,000 feet (1,219 meters) of water by a Gulf of Mexico mission led by the National Oceanic and

The long-lost vessel lies about 1,460 feet below the surface of the water, along a long, underwater cliff known as the Florida Escarpment. The team made the discovery on May 16 during an expedition, before sharing news of the wreck online this week.

An unusual sonar signal tipped the team off to the wreck, and they scrambled to contact expert marine archaeologists once they realized what they had found. The archeologists joined a live video stream of the seafloor to observe the dive remotely.

High-resolution images revealed a ship likely built around the mid-1800s, according to the NOAA. But archaeologists couldn’t immediately tell how long ago the ship sank. Made of wood with copper sheathing, the vessel is thought to have stretched about 124 feet long.

Researchers say a shipwreck has been discovered 150 miles off the coast of Galveston that could yield insight into Texas' fight for independence. It may have sunk in the Gulf of Mexico 200 years ago. The ship was some 4,300 feet below the surface. Items discovered aboard the vessel include

A fisherman off the coast of Mexico spotted a shipwreck that archaeologists determined to be more than 200 years old . The institute said initial examinations of the wreck indicate the crew had lowered in the anchor in the hopes of preventing the vessel from wrecking , but they were unsuccessful.

So far, many mysteries about the boat remain. Researchers haven’t been able to confirm details about the boat’s nationality, crew, rig or trade, the NOAA reported. Specialists have combined multiple pictures of the wreck to create a mosaic image of the vessel for further investigation.

However, the numbers “2109” were nailed to the edge of the ship’s rudder, and some iron and copper artefacts were spotted near the vessel.

The pattern of nails securing the copper sheathing is plainly visible.

Much of the ship’s hull is relatively well-preserved, although parts of the protective copper sheathing have deteriorated. Unusually, no structure remains above the ship’s water line, and the team found little evidence of standing rigging.

wooden ship believed to be over 200 years old was discovered during a recent exploration of the northern Gulf of Mexico , according to a press release from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

An oil company exploration crew's chance discovery of a 200 - year - old shipwreck in a little-charted stretch of the Gulf of Mexico is yielding a trove of new information to scientists who say it's one of the most well-preserved old wrecks ever found in the Gulf .

Charred pieces of timber and bent fasteners suggests the boat may have caught alight at sea. Researchers think fire may have engulfed the boat and destroyed almost everything above the surface of the water.

NOAA spokesperson Emily Crum described the “surprising” find to the Observer. “Typically when we find/explore shipwrecks, we have some basic information that allows us to search for a target,” she told the newspaper. “In this instance, there was no information to suggest the wreck was there. The team just ‘stumbled’ upon it.”

The NOAA did not immediately respond to Newsweek's request for comment.

Prince Mohammed bin Zayed, the 29-year-old commander of the almost negligible air force of the United Arab Emirates, had come to Washington shopping for weapons. In 1991, in the months after Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait, the young prince wanted to buy so much military hardware to protect his own oil-rich monarchy — from Hellfire missiles to Apache helicopters to F-16 jets — that Congress worried he might destabilize the region. require(["inlineoutstreamAd", "c.
