Archaeologists from the University of Zadar in Croatia have found a 7000-year-old road inside the sea, linking the Croatian island of Korcula’s coast with the submerged prehistoric town of the Hvar culture.
One of the most unexpected archaeological discoveries has intrigued social media. A team has discovered a 7000-year-old road buried at the bottom of the sea. The path was found at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea, concealed by mud deposits.
The route is thought to have linked the Croatian island of Korcula’s coast with the submerged prehistoric town of the Hvar culture. Stone pavers that were once part of a connection that was four metres wide have been meticulously placed to form the road.
Investigators from the University of Zadar in Croatia wrote on Facebook that the radiocarbon dating of preserved wood discovered during earlier archaeological campaigns indicated that the settlement was around 4,900 years before Christ as well as that people had been using these paths for travel as far back as 7000 years.
Archaeologists have uncovered the ancient gods of a lost civilization in a stunning find at the ancient Tartessian site of Casas del Turuñuelo, with the discovery of five reliefs of human faces.
