Workers at the New York's World Trade Centre site are excavating a 10 metre-long ship hull archaeologists discovered at Ground Zero.
The ship is believed to have been used in the 18th century as part of the fill that extended lower Manhattan into the Hudson River.
Archaeologist Molly McDonald said it was hoped portions of the ship could be left intact, despite the fragile nature of the old timber.
Samples of the ship have been sent to a laboratory for testing on the ship's exact age.
