Your fun science story for the week-Head of Hercules Found in ancient shipwreck

I found this original story at the Daily Wire, about how divers exploring a Roman-era shipwreck near the Greek island of Antikythera, found the missing piece of a statue, where the body was recovered about 100 years ago!  Here’s a picture of the body of the statue, which resides in the Greek Archaeological Museum.


I also found a good article in Science/Times which describes the location of the head, and the story of the shipwreck.  Go read the article, you are bound to learn something!  I sure did.
