Usually, Shipwrecks serve no in-game purpose, but there are two cases where approaching the Shipwrecks provides some resources:
- In Consequences, a Shipwreck be found to the northernmost tip of the island. Approaching it grants the player 300 wood and 200 gold.
- In Greetings from Greece, three Shipwrecks are found to the north of the player's starting position. In order to salvage them, the player has to reach Line of Sight of them with either land units or the starting Transport Ship. Reaching them grants 300 gold.
- As with Tents, Shrines, and Naval Shipyards, there are three variations of Shipwrecks; a Trireme, a Kebenit, and a Longboat version.
- Shipwrecks do not technically grant the player/finder resources, as this is done through the use of triggers in specific scenarios.
"The Mediterranean is a tempestuous sea, so her bottom is littered with shipwrecks. Much of our information about ancient commerce has been gained from studying the cargo and other surviving artifacts from such wrecks."
