Shipwreck found in Black Sea is 'world's oldest intact'

The ship was surveyed and digitally mapped by two remote underwater vehicles

A Greek merchant ship dating back more than 2,400 years has been found lying on its side off the Bulgarian coast.
The 23m (75ft) wreck, found in the Black Sea by an Anglo-Bulgarian team, is being hailed as officially the world's oldest known intact shipwreck.
The researchers were stunned to find the merchant vessel closely resembled in design a ship that decorated ancient Greek wine vases.
The rudder, rowing benches and even the contents of its hold remain intact.
"It's like another world," Helen Farr from the expedition told the BBC.
"It's when the ROV [remote operated vehicle] drops down through the water column and you see this ship appear in the light at the bottom so perfectly preserved it feels like you step back in time."

The reason the trading vessel, dating back to around 400 BC, has remained in such good condition for so long is that the water is anoxic, or free of oxygen. Lying more than 2,000m below the surface, it is also beyond the reach of modern divers.
"It's preserved, it's safe," she added. "It's not deteriorating and it's unlikely to attract hunters."
The vessel was one of many tracking between the Mediterranean and Greek colonies on the Black Sea coast. It was discovered more than 80km off the Bulgarian city of Burgas.

Alternate history

Basically it's a world in which the French made a serious effort to settle Canada from the start, and Canada becomes a colony too populous and powerful for the British to knock out and take over. The British colonies, meanwhile, are divided by a Swedish colony (the Swedes are a bigger deal in this world), which screws up the American Revolution: the revolt succeeds in the south, but the Virginians are unable to hook up with their fellow colonials in New England, and the New England revolutionaries are crushed in detail by the British.

It is now the 1800s, and Canada has become independent as a result of the French Revolution. They have come to blows with the rump USA over who controls Louisiana, and thanks to a more centralized government with a better military, the Canadians have won and control the Mississippi, at least for now.

How U.S. Forces Failed to Conquer Canada 200 Years Ago

The United States’ invasion of Canada 200 years ago went awry from the start.

The United States’ first foray into Canada occurred at the beginning of the American Revolutionary War, when colonial troops marched all the way to Quebec City before being repelled. By the time the War of 1812 rolled around almost four decades later, the so-called “war hawk” members of Congress were clamoring for a second go-around. There were even a few calls for part or all of Canada, then a British colony, to be annexed. At that time, around 7.5 million people lived in the United States, compared to only about 500,000 in Canada, many of whom were of French or American descent rather than British.

I wonder what proportion of the people of the Roman empire actually spoke Latin.
