Dredging in the Hudson river in New York has uncovered a wooden sail boat dating back to the early 1800s.

“This part of the area is very rich in archeological and historical artifacts dating from the French and Indian War and the commerce that occurred here during much of the 19th Century,” said Behan.

To find it, archeologists scoured the bottom of the river by hand, a painstaking process that lasted the better part of two summers It’s part of the agreement that GE worked out with the EPA.
