Dozens of ancient shipwrecks have been discovered so far on the seabed of ​​Split-Dalmatia County, from the earliest ones dating to the 4th century BC, which are also the earliest known shipwrecks on the eastern coast of the Adriatic, to those dating to Late Antiquity in the 4th and 5th centuries. They are the remains of merchant ships that most often transported various cargo in amphorae or, more rarely, stones and building materials (sarcophagi, stone vessels, stone blocks, tegulae). Although a large number of known amphora sites have, unfortunately, been partially or completely destroyed, several untouched sites have been found in the last few years and an even larger number have remained preserved at greater depths. With the development of diving, such sites are gradually becoming available for underwater archaeological research, as well as for conservation, presentation and diving tourism.
