Second boat found in Naples
January 15th, 2004

The second boat has been found close to the previous in the same excavations in the City Hall square in Naples.
This new boat has identical dimensions (10 meters long and 2 meters wide) compared with the first found few days ago, and many theories come to the mind to justify the presence of them. Could be that these boats were used to reach big ships that were not able to enter the sea port and download goods from them.
Among the items are coins, glass bottles still uncorked with the organic material perfectly preserved, intact amphorae and soles of seafarers' shoes, probably tossed away when they were no longer good.
Also found by the ship were seafarer's tools, such as needles to darn the nets, ropes, nails, hooks, stone anchors, and ancient lamps to attract fish at night.


The ships found

Hoping to come across other important discoveries, in the next months the team that has recovered the "Pisa Ships" will follow the subway work and excavate deeper and keep in safe the wooden boats.
