Archaeologists Find Graveyard of Sunken Roman Ships

Archaeologists have found five Roman ships in excellent condition off the coast of Italy:
A team of archaeologists using sonar technology to scan the seabed have discovered a "graveyard" of five pristine ancient Roman shipwrecks off the small Italian island of Ventotene.

The trading vessels, dating from the first century BC to the fifth century AD, lie more than 100 meters underwater and are amongst the deepest wrecks discovered in the Mediterranean in recent years, the researchers said on Thursday.

Fine? I've never been pulled over by an archaeologist, but I imagine it went something like this "Where's the funeral? Let me see your burial license and death certificates."
