Prehistoric road discovered under the Mediterranean Sea

Researchers suggest that the road connected the ancient cultural community of Hvar with the now isolated island of Korcula.

Under the Mediterranean Sea, archaeologists have used satellite imagery to discover and excavate the remains of a seven-thousand-year-old road hidden beneath layers of sea silt on Croatia’s southern coast. Science Alert writes about it.

It is noted that this remarkable find, made at the submerged Neolithic site of Soline, may have once linked the ancient cultural community of Hvar to the now isolated island of Korcula.

The prehistoric road was protected from strong waves for thousands of years. The path, about four meters wide, was built from carefully stacked stone slabs.

Researchers believe that the Neolithic Hvar culture, once active in the eastern Adriatic, built the flooded settlement of Soline and the ancient causeway that connected the islands.

Through radiocarbon dating of preserved timber, the entire settlement has been dated to around 4900 BC.

It was previously reported that archaeologists found the most ancient city for pearls in the Persian Gulf on the island of Sinia in Umm al-Quwain.
