An exhibition on underwater research in bay of Veštar opened at Rovinj museum

International Centre for Underwater Archaeology in Zadar has set an exhibition of archaeological finds at the Rovinj Heritage Museum on Friday, the July 1st 2011. Exhibition comes as a result of two years of underwater archeological research in bay of Veštar near Rovinj. Archaeological finds from the bay of Veštar which have been restored and conserved so far have been represented. Considering that this research has began in 2008, and continuing, we can expect the successive presentation of new findings in years to come. This research has rounded up knowledge of the history of bay of Veštar: numerous remains of pottery, vessels, amphorae and other objects that testify flourishing life in the bay of Veštar since Roman times. Continuing research and its extension to the coastal part of the archaeological site will give a more complete picture of the location in the future.
