A wooden ship believed to have been among the English king Henry V's "great ships" has been found in a muddy river south of England.

Experts from Historic England believe the wreckage that lies buried in the mud at the bottom of the river Hamble near Southampton is "Holigost" (Holy Ghost).

Historic England is a government agency tasked to preserve historical buildings and monuments.

The ship was an important part of Henrik V's war machine, and played a key role in two naval battles before the king conquered land in France in the early 1400s.

- Getting to examine a ship from this period is extremely exciting, says the head of Historic England, Duncan Wilson, to AFP.

- It could pave the way for exciting discoveries in the coming months and years.

The discovery was made public two weeks before the event that will mark the 600 year anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt.

The 600 year old ship was discovered just beside the King's flagship, "Grace Dieu", which was found in 1930 by historian Ian Friel, through investigation of aerial photos.

- There is a real possibility that parts of the ship may be intact in the river Hable, he told BBC Radio 4 on Monday.

Historic England will conduct research with sonar and take timber samples to ascertain whether it is actually Holigost that is located in the river, he adds.
