Arm points to existence of at least seven statues from Greek shipwreck, already the source of most extensive and exciting ancient cargo ever found


This article titled “Antikythera shipwreck yields bronze arm – and hints at spectacular haul of statues” was written by Ian Sample Science editor, for The Guardian on Wednesday 4th October 2017 11.56 UTC

Marine archaeologists have recovered a bronze arm from an ancient shipwreck off the Greek island of Antikythera, where the remains of at least seven more priceless statues from the classical world are believed to lie buried.

Divers found the right arm, encrusted and stained green, under half a metre of sediment on the boulder-strewn slope where the ship and its cargo now rest. The huge vessel, perhaps 50m from bow to stern, was sailing from Asia Minor to Rome in 1BC when it foundered near the tiny island between Crete and the Peloponnese.

The project team, from the Greek Ephorate of Underwater Antiquities and Lund University in Sweden, discovered the buried arm with a bespoke underwater metal detector which has revealed the presence of other large metal objects nearby under the seabed. “There should be at least seven statues,” Alexandros Sotiriou, a Greek technical diver on the team told the Guardian. The operation is overseen by Ageliki Simosi, director of the Greek Ephorate of Underwater Antiquities, which is responsible for all underwater archaeology in Greece.

This article titled “Late-night hosts on Fox News: ‘The closest we have to state TV'” was written by Guardian staff, for theguardian.com on Thursday 6th April 2017 15.58 UTC

Late-night hosts took aim at Trump’s close relationship with Bill O’Reilly and discussed his daughter Ivanka’s role in the White House.

On The Late Show, Stephen Colbert talked about how the president had “stuck his finger into O’Reilly’s sticky situation”, referring to the Fox News pundit’s sexual harassment suits that the network settled to the tune of m.
