Construction workers at the site of a luxury complex uncovered an unexpected boon- an 18th century Spanish ship. It was found in Puerto Madero, the most expensive neighborhood of Buenos Aires, and the city’s old port.  Mayor Mauricio Macri announced the ship’s find in the Plata River.  Archaeologist Marcelo Weissel says it probably dates back to 1750 or earlier and does not contain any treasure.
