Just saw this cool news:

Found several months ago but just being made public
Shipwreck with 20 grinding stones and 50 amphorae from the ship date back to around 700 B.C.

Sorry No pics will have to wait.

Some links to area, archeology & diving:

There's lots of pottery in the photos, but I don't see any vestiges of the ship at all on the seabed. Maybe they have to dig for it if there is anything left of it to be found?

Yes digging they will have to do. The first AP article says

"Divers near a Maltese island have found an ancient ship's cargo "
"Experts hope to find parts of the ship and other artifacts beneath the sandy seabed"
"The location of the shipwreck, discovered months ago, will be disclosed after experts finish their work."

The video says they have taken over 8,000 photos of I guess just the stuff on the surface & that it is in excellent preserved condition. Would love to be there to help them sift the sands.
