    This is an unprecedented discovery. This kind of find is very rare. Perhaps because the shipyard this story is about was large enough to be one of the only shipyards during the 2nd century.

    Thanks Astronuc, it didn't occur to me that this shipyard would be a part of the Portus complex. Totally cool!!!
