Ancient pots, they don't look like they have been under water

that long, unless he has cleaned them up, looks like he could

be in trouble if the penalties are anything like Thailand, where

you can go to prison with large fine just for touching a Starfish.

Looks more like they were placed under the sea to be ancientified.  

The style does look suspiciously modern, eh?

Define ancient. 2 years? More?

 

Remarkably well preserved for what I would call 'ancient'.
