      "The excavation of ships found in a now silted-in harbor of Pisa was
      previously announced. Some of the information about those ships is now being
      released as they are being excavated. The ships date to between 200 BC and AD
      500. There also is a stone pier and wooden breakwater that are older,
      possibly dating to 500 BC. Materials from the ships provide a look at the
      maritime trading empire that helped fuel the Roman Empire.

      A fairly lengthy story about the ships is at:
