Ship unearthed at World Trade Center site

Workers excavating the site of the underground vehicle security center for the future World Trade Center in New York this week discovered the remains of a wooden ship that likely dates back to the mid- to late 18th century.

The 30-foot length of the vessel had been discovered about 20 to 30 feet below street level on the World Trade Center site, the first such large-scale archaeological find along the Manhattan waterfront since 1982, when an 18th-century cargo ship came to light at 175 Water Street, according to the New York Times.

A 1797 map shows that the excavation site is close to where Lindsey's Wharf and Lake's Wharf once projected into the Hudson.
