A medieval ship has been raised after half a millenium of resting on a riverbed in The Netherlands. Archaeologists have confirmed that the find is a 15th century “cog” – a trading vessel used to sail the North and Baltic Seas, according to Sky News. While evacuating the port of the city of Kampen, construction workers came across the skeleton of the ship underwater beneath sand and silt.
