Ancient ships found under Oslo mud (Norway)
Jostein Gundersen said at least nine wooden boats, the largest being 17 meters (56 feet) long, were found well preserved nearly 400 years after they sank at Bjoervika, an Oslo inlet near the new national opera house.
"For us, this is a sensation," he told The Associated Press."There has never been a find of so many boats and in such good condition at one site in Norway."
