The discovery of the remains of a Roman road and dock submerged in the Venice lagoon could prove there were permanent human settlements in the area centuries before Venice was founded, researchers say.

Scuba divers discovered what appeared to be paving stones beneath the lagoon in the 1980s, but only after more recent research were the relics confirmed to have formed part of a road system.

“After speaking to those who first found these stones in the 1980s, I understood that it was something significant that could be anthropic,” said Fantina Madricardo, researcher at the Institute of Marine Science.

Madricardo and her colleagues used 3D sonar mapping to study the underwater environment, and with the help of a team of divers from the local police force found 12 archaeological structures last summer in the area of the Treporti Channel.

Venice is believed to have been formally founded on 25 March AD421, and marked its 1,600th anniversary this year.

I wonder if that will be how many areas around the world are in the future, when they get submerged underwater cos of rising sea level.

This is so fascinating, I love learning about the worlds before us. Although I'm terrified of deep water!

Start digging anywhere Romans once occupied and you'll find something. Apparently, including underwater. 

it's Anthropocene baby! there are a lot of places where there is land, but there was soil; and where there is soil, but there was water. Really a testament to men's ingenuity when we want to achieve something <3

Imagine scientists in a few thousand years finding a Chromatica jockstrap and be like

"What could it mean? Was Chromatica a cult? Or was it a place? This must have been their clothing for rituals. :oprah:"

Licensed mess since 1995

For the most part true, except for the northern shores of the Black Sea, Caucasus and Mesopotamia.
