4. Amfore - Amphorae.JPG


The underwater archaeological site of Trstenik has been under excavation since 2002, 
when a cache of Dressel 20 type amphorae was discovered along with the rim of a large, 
ceramic dolium (on display in the Croatian Maritime Museum in Split). Subsequent 
excavations led to the unearthing of a wooden pool structure filled with seawater, a large 
cache of globular amphorae surrounded by wooden pylons, the remains of three ships and 
numerous other archeological finds. After reviewing aerial shots of the site, a sunken structure 
resembling a wharf was noticed as well as a square surface which is believed to have been a 
Roman villa. This archaeological site dates back to the period from the 1st century BCE to the 
3rd century CE.
