Abstract: Submerged History of the Adriatic – an overview of the Croatian underwater heritage

Lecturer: Hrvoje Potrebica

This lecture will provide general overview of results of almost half a century of submarine archaeology in Croatia. The underwater cultural heritage of the Adriatic Sea is extremely rich and covers almost all periods and all kinds of sites: from submerged Paleolithic sites to modern shipwrecks of the 20th century. However, majority of finds belong to the Roman Period and most of them come from shipwrecks. They reflect the importance of the Adriatic Sea as one of the transport routes closest to the very heart of the Roman Empire.
