Probable Roman shipwrecks unearthed at a Serbian coal mine
« послато: Април 18, 2020, 08:17:27 поподне »
The Kostolac surface mine in Serbia lies near the ancient Roman city of Viminacium.  this was once a provincial capital and the base for a squadron of Roman warships on the Danube River. When the Roman Empire ruled most of Southern Europe, the Danube or one of its larger branches flowed across the land now occupied by the mine. The three discovered ships lay atop a 15-meter- (49-foot-) deep layer of gravel, buried under seven meters (23 feet) of silt and clay, which preserved them for centuries in remarkably good condition—or did until the miners' earthmoving equipment dug into the steep slope to excavate for the mine.
