ZAMBRATIJA – ZAMBRATTIA

ISTRIADUCTION All Year | No Working time | Free Entrance I fondali dell`odierna baia di Zambrattia sono un vero e proprio tesori archeologico. Tutti i reperti archeologici rinvenuti in mare, per effetto di mutamenti naturali avvenuti negli ultimi millenni ( innalzamento del livello del mare – trasgressione marina), in orgine si trovavano su terraferma oppure lungo la costa.I resti di un`imbarcazione protostorica sono stati rivenutti alla profondità di 2,20m sotto il mare. Si tratta di una nave con il fasciame dello scafo formato da assi di olmo tenute insieme da corde fatte passare attraverso i fori praticati sui bordi della tavole. La lunghezza conservata dello mediante radiocarbonio fa risalire l`imbarcazione protostorica di Zambrattia alla fine dell`età del bronzo. Conferendole di titolo della nave più antica di questo genere rinvenuta nell`Adriatico. MORE ISTRIAGO COLLECTIONS
