Ferry Old

Kathryn Quinn

Archeologists believe they may have unearthed the world's oldest shipwreck under a bay in Zambratija, Croatia.

Experts say the 20ft long ship could be up to 3,000 years old and parts of the craft and its cargo are still intact beneath the sands.

Archaeologist Ida Koncani Uhac told local media: "This is the oldest archaeological discoveries in the Adriatic, and possibly in the world.

"We are very carefully sifting the sand away at the moment but we are really excited about what might be down here. We then need to get a more exact date for the wreck - but it could easily be the oldest in the world according to what we know so far."

The Adriatic has been the source of numerous shipwrecks dating back thousands of years when it was a key trade route for the Roman empire.
