"The drought helped us a lot because what had been lying underneath is now at the surface," said Hubert Kowalski, Deputy director of the University of Warsaw Museum, leading the effort to retrieve the marble stonework.

Archaeologists believe the stonework was part of a trove which 17th-century Swedish invaders looted from Poland's rulers and loaded onto barges to transport home, only for the booty to go to the bottom when the vessels sank.

Global? Since when is Poland global? Just because Texas and the midwest are in a drought of historic proportions at the same time, it doesn't mean it's anything "global"

Sweden was for few centuries one of the great powers of Europe and did quite a bit of invading and blundering and stuff.

Researchers knew about the artefacts, on the river bed where the Vistula passes through the Polish capital but, before the drought, retrieving them was a painstaking task because they were under several feet of water.
Several feet of water? How hard could that be?

This is some pretty shiatty 'treasure' - it would take some seriously heavy machinery to get it out. Call me when some nice sunken gold bars start popping up and I'll swing by

"retrieving them was a painstaking task because they were under several feet of water."

"Regular lifting equipment would sink into the mud, but the river is too low for the researchers to bring in floating cranes.
"We need to wait until it gets higher," Kowalski said. 

So... the "Goldilocks zone" is between 2 and 24 inches ??!!?
