Most of the wooden ship has rotted away, revealing its ancient cargo.
The copper hull remains, tinted green by the salt water, and the seafloor is littered with ceramics, jars, muskets, and other 19th century items. It was found by NOAA, which hopes to continue its investigation of the wreck and bring the history to life.
