ANCIENT BOAT FOUND IN CITY CENTRE

The remains of a 13th century boat have been found on the building site for a new car park and luxury flats in the Barceloneta area in the centre of Barcelona. Archaeologists believe that the boat sank in the area in the 13th or 14th century when the area was still under the sea. The remains were lying some seven metres below the current sea level. Barcelona Mayor Jordi Hereu visited the site last week with the director of the Barcelona City Museum, Joan Roca, to check out the unusual discovery for themselves. The archaeologists said the boat’s design indicated that it came from a country on the Atlantic and are now trying to find out exactly where it came from.
