Archaeologists have unearthed the decaying bow of an ancient Gold Rush-era sailing ship dating back to the early 1800s. According to Associated Press, a dig crew unearthed the first portions of the ship as they carved away dirt to lay the foundation for a 650-unit condominium development in San Francisco.

"This is awesome. Everybody gets excited about this. It makes digging in all that mud worthwhile," said James Allan, an archaeologist with Williams Self Associates overseeing the removal and cataloguing of the ship's remains.

In the 1850s, as many as 600 ships were abandoned in San Francisco's harbour, burned or simply junked by owners who switched their focus to mining the rich gold veins in the state's interior, according to Wolfgang Schubert, who gives historical walking tours of the San Francisco's waterfront for the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
