Ancient Shipwrecks of the Adriatic

Maritime transport during the first and second centuries AD

Mario Jurišic


This book explores trade routes along the Eastern Adriatic coast based primarily on the evidence of numerous 1st and 2nd century shipwrecks. All the known shipwrecks are catalogued, and the different cargoes as well as the ships’ equipment, mostly amphorae and pottery, is discussed. Material found in the underwater sites of Croatia comes from the eastern workshops of the Aegean, but also from Hispania, Italy and Africa.
