A Greek-U.S. team of marine archaeologists has located three ancient shipwrecks with pottery cargoes, including 1,900-year-old branded designer lamps, and two from much later times, in a rich graveyard of ships in the eastern Aegean Sea, a project official said Tuesday.The older wrecks date to the fourth and second centuries B.C. and A.D. fifth-sixth centuries, while the more recent ones are from the 18th or 19th century, said archaeologist George Koutsouflakis, joint leader of the project.The five new finds, all trading ships, raise to 58 the total number of ancient, medieval and more recent wrecks located since 2015 around the lobster-shaped Fourni complex.
