Author(s): Jurica Bezak; Igor Miholjek

Year: 2013


As the leading team in Croatian underwater archaeology, the Department for Underwater Archaeology of the Croatian Conservation Institute carries out systematic and protective research on underwater archaeological sites along the Croatian coastline of the Adriatic Sea. The Department's field of work covers a large time span and encompasses prehistory, classical antiquity, the Byzantine period, medieval and post-Mediaeval shipwrecks dating from the 11th to the 18th centuries, and wrecks from World War I & World War II. This paper offers an overview of the most important underwater archaeological sites discovered in the last few years, together with presentation of methodological developments and new approaches taken towards the protection and presentation of the underwater cultural heritage.
