A medieval shipwreck has been discovered in the depths of Russia’s Volga River.
Workers from the Holy Mother of God's Kazan monastery in the village of Vinnovka discovered the wreck in the spring.
Archaeologists from Samara Polytech in Russia were called in to examine the wreck, which dates back to the 14th or 15th centuries.
Using underwater ultrasound scanners and a submersible drone, experts found the ship, which measures about 164 feet by 66 feet.
“Most of the sunken ship is in the sand, but the ultrasound images clearly show [the] aft end and preserved frame timbers, and in the video you can see a large chain and old ropes,” scientists said in a statement.
