Ship found buried at World Trade Center site

Construction workers at the World Trade Center have uncovered the remains of a ship buried in the site’s mud. The vessel, whose hull measures roughly 32 feet, appears to be from the 18th century but archeologists plan to study the ship and an anchor found nearby to determine its age and place of origin. Both objects may have been part of (or buried by) the landfill used to extend Lower Manhattan in the nineteenth century.
