It appears that the structure was consumed by floodwaters that inundated the Black Sea.In 1999 Ballard discovered an ancient shoreline, about 550 feet (168 meters) below the current level of the Black Sea.
Ive never seen anything like that before, and Ive seen a lot of things. Says Markey, this was the long shot, and it turned out to be the winner. The expedition will continue to file dispatches from the Black Sea as new discoveries are made. Evidence of Human Habitation (photo gallery and preliminary sketches) Ballard and the Black Sea Robert Ballard Biography Return to Midway University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology Black Sea Trade Project Institute of Nautical Archaeology Mystic Aquarium: Institute for Exploration Flood Stories From Around the World Underwater Archaeology Resources The Eco-Challenge Titanic discoverer Robert Ballard has identified the remains of a wooden building preserved near the oxygen-less waters of the Black Sea.
Markey joined the expedition to chronicle the search for evidence of human habitation in the preflood landscape of the Black Sea.
Finding any signs of human occupation was a long shot for the team, which had planned to devote just two weeks to the search.
It consists of [the remains of] a single building with a hewn beam and wooden branches that formed the walls and roof of a structuremost likely a house.
We have also found and photographed stone tools, possibly a chisel or an axe, and ceramic storage vessels, all untouched since the flooding of the Black Sea. The find represents the first concrete evidence for the occupation of the Black Sea coast prior to its flooding, says expedition archaeologist Fredrik Hiebert, of the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.
The building [has] carved wooden beams, wooden branches, and stone tools collapsed among the mud matrix of the structure, Ballard said.
Archaeologist Hiebert noted the presence of a stone axe, which looked exactly like one in a Sinop archaeology museum, located just 40 miles (64 kilometers) from the find.Today Ballard, famous for finding Titanic, confirmed that his research team, sponsored in part by the National Geographic Society, has identified a wooden structure on a gently sloping shelf near the convergence of two submerged ancient river beds. This is an incredible find, Ballard said in a telephone call to the National Geographic Society from the expedition ship Northern Horizon.SIGNS OF LIFE Early last week, using the remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Argus, Ballards team spotted a rectangular feature about 12 meters (13 yards) long and 4 meters (4.4 yards) wide at the intersection of two ancient inland river channels . Though intrigued, they were forced to wait for the arrival of the more nimble ROV Little Hercules, whose superior video capability enabled the crew to get closer to the structure and get a much clearer look.Through Little Hercules robotic eyes, on Friday the team looked again at the mysterious structure, and confirmed it was a type of dwelling.As the waters rose, the mud probably melted away, leaving the wooden bones behind.
