Roman road was discovered under water in Venice. In the photo, the ancient road and buildings are marked in red with lines and dots
In Venice, at the bottom of the Treporti canal, remains of the Roman road were discovered. The discovery was made in July 2021.
According to the researchers, the discovery happened by accident, when their interest was aroused by a structure located under the water, parallel to the shoreline, stretching for a distance of 1.2 km. As it turns out, by the road, the remains of various buildings were also discovered, a total of 16. The objects are at a depth of 3.6 to 11.4 m.
Probably the discovered remains of the building could have been port structures and docks. It should be mentioned that in ancient times the level of the Mediterranean Sea was lower than today.
