An underwater Archaeological Site of the Neolithic settlement has been found at Soline, a small bay located between Korcula Old Town and Lumbarda at Korcula island. In the above photo, which is a screenshot of this video, you can see underwater archeologists examining the site. Some of the found objects are now exhibited in the newly renovated Town Museum.
You can also have a look at this site – all you need is your snorkeling equipment (mask and flippers) and you can snorkel around the site. Of course, you are not allowed to touch anything. The settlement’s walls are about 4 meters below the sea surface. Here is a video:
Listen to the presentation (Croatian language):
The ancient road made by early humans was uncovered at the bottom of the sea. Deposits of sea mud had been hiding a road that had connected the sunken, prehistoric settlement with the coast of Korcula island. The stone plates, which were part of the four-meter-wide platform, are carefully stacked while radiocarbon dating of preserved wood near the site was used to estimate that the entire settlement may have been built around 4,900 BC. The road, which is now nearly 5m below water level, was part of an active site during its heyday.
They uncovered some artifacts as well as the road which can be linked back to the Neolithic Era, nearly 7,000 years ago.
Below the deposits of sea mud was discovered a road that connected the sunken prehistoric settlement of ancient culture with the coast of Soline, Korcula island.
