Researchers from the University of Zadar, Croatia, recently discovered a 7,000-year-old road at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea. The road, which has a width of approximately 4mts, is buried under the sea off the coast of Korcula, a Croatian island. The road is a part of the Soline settlement built by the Hvar culture during the Neolithic period. According to archaeologists, the ancient stone road connected the sunken Neolithic site with Korcula’s coast. The Soline settlement was discovered by archaeologists in 2021 and it is believed that the settlement dates to around 4,900BC.
