ANM News Desk: Archaeologists have found the world’s oldest shipwreck off the coast in Antalya, Turkey. Wrecks of the wooden boat are about 3,600 years old and was found after unearthing a trade vessel.

The boat, which contained 1.5 tonnes of copper bars, was found divers from Antalya University’s Underwater Research Department. Preliminary research suggests the copper came from mines on the island of Cyprus and was being transported to Aegean shores or the island of Crete in the Mediterranean Sea when the boat sank.
