Underwater archaeologists exploring the shipwreck that once contained the mysterious Antikythera Mechanism have recovered the rather sizeable head of a marble Hercules sculpture. The retrieval of the piece reportedly occurred during an expedition to the downed vessel, which sits off the coast of Greece, in late May and early June. The endeavor at the wreck saw researchers relocate three 8.5-ton boulders that had previously made areas of the submerged ship inaccessible. With the massive rocks out of the way, divers were able to visit areas of the sunken vessel that had yet to be fully investigated.
