Archeologists Find 7,000-Year-Old Road Under Mediterranean Sea

-

Marine archeologists have found an ancient underwater road off the coast of Korcula Island, Croatia in the Adriatic Sea.

Researchers believe the road connected the sunken prehistoric settlement of Hvar culture with the coast of Korcula Island, according to a statement issued by the University of Zadar:

“These are carefully stacked stone plates that were part of the four-meter-wide communication that connected the artificially created island with the coast. By radiocarbon analysis data of preserved wood found in the last campaign, the entire settlement dates back to around 4,900 BC. People walked on this communication almost 7,000 years ago.”

Check out a video of the find below.
