We can only hope that they explore the oldest wreck first! According to the article, it's been tentatively dated to approximately 1200. Eek! With the wood being so well preserved, wouldn't it be incredible to find some shields and shafted weapons intact! I'm keeping my fingers crossed, but not holding my breath.

Now that is darn cool! No way to know what kinds of ships they are from the article, but hopefully we'll see more photos in the months to come.
