This newly-discovered prehistoric road was found 15 feet below the Bay of Gradina's surface, which once served as a passageway between Korcula Island in Croatia and the now-submerged Soline Island settlement on a man-made landmass.
In their latest discovery, archaeologists have unearthed the remnants of a 7,000-year-old road hidden beneath deep-sea layers of mud off the southern Croatian coast.
The researchers and scientists from the University of Zadar’s Archeology Department also uncovered several other artifacts like flint blades, stone axes and fragments of millstones from the site.
With radiocarbon analysis, the scientists figured out that the road, made up of carefully stacked stone slabs, belonged to a Neolithic settlement that was inhabited by the Hvar maritime culture around 5000 BC.
The researchers from Croatia's University of Zadar posted a video on YouTube of the deep-sea expedition showcasing the new footage of the underwater “road” which is made of stacked stones that measure about 12 feet wide.
Meanwhile, the researchers and scientists continue to fully excavate the Soline site.
