WATCH: Divers discover 'world's oldest' shipwreck

THE carcass of an ancient Greek ship has been hailed as the "world's oldest" intact shipwreck after being discovered in the Black Sea.

The Black Sea Maritime Archaeology Project found the 2,400-year-old trading vessel after spending three years investigating prehistoric sea level change.

In video of the historic moment, divers cruise over the skeleton of the wreck in the dark waters of the eastern European body of water.

Members of the team said the wreck had rested mostly undisturbed.

However, the Greek ship wasn't the only boat found at the bottom of the Black Sea with the organisation claiming over 60 wrecks have settled on the seabed.
