A diver ex­plores a ship­wreck off the Fournoi islets in the Aegean Sea in a pho­to­graph re­leased by the Cul­ture Min­istry yes­ter­day. A to­tal of 45 ship­wrecks, many dating to an­cient times, have been found in the area, one of the Mediter­ranean’s ‘rich­est’ ar­chae­o­log­i­cal sites, the min­istry said. Apart from the wrecks, marine ar­chae­ol­o­gists have also dis­cov­ered hun­dreds of ce­ramic ar­ti­facts and an­chors. Ac­cord­ing to the min­istry, the ar­ti­facts and an­chors are ‘ev­i­dence of nav­i­ga­tion and trade off the archipelago.’
