In many shipwrecks, gold is among the items found on-board a fallen vessel. For goldbugs, that is what makes a recent shipwreck discovery in Greece so intriguing.
A joint Greek-American archaeological expedition in the small Fourni archipelago, an area of merely 17 square miles, has turned up one of the great archaeological finds of 2015, according to Discovery.
Fourni is located in the middle of major east-west crossing route, and also the north-south route which once connected the Aegean to the Levant. When traveling from the Greek mainland to Asia minor, ships en route to the Levant from Aegan passed by Fourni. This expedition was the first organized to the islands.
