The anchor is believed to be the second biggest on the site, measuring about 13 feet (4 metres) long with arms that are eight feet (2.4 metres) wide and weighing about 3,000 pounds (1,360 kg), said Mark Wilde-Ramsing, a deputy state archaeologist.
He described the effort as an “archaeologist’s dream come true.”
