Ahoy! An old shipwreck has been discovered in Boston’s Seaport District.
Crews from the construction company Skanska unearthed the rare piece of buried treasure sometime last week while digging at a construction site on Seaport Boulevard, according to CBS Boston. It’s about 50-feet long and appears to be from the 1800s.
They’ve stopped construction, and now an impromptu archaeological dig is underway.
Joe Bagley, Boston’s archaeologist, said on Twitter he plans to live-tweet the dig all day Thursday.
