Eighteenth Century Ship Found Buried Below Ground Zero

9/11 siteWorkers have found a 300-year-old ship beneath the ruins of the  9/11 World Trade Center attack, TIME reports:

On Tuesday, as workers were preparing the site of the September 11 attacks for the future World Trade Center, they uncovered what turned out to be a ship approximately 30 feet below street level. Thought to be from the 18th century, the vessel was uncovered in an area that wasn’t excavated when the original World Trade Center was being built.

Also found nearby was a 100-pound anchor. It’s thought that the ship and the anchor, along with other fragments, were used at one time to fill in land in order to expand Manhattan further into the Hudson River.
