NEW ROMAN WRECK Dae44
During our wanderings we discovered a deposit of amphorae at a depth of 250 meters, relatively shallow for us, about 9 miles northeast of Cap Corse. The site was heavily damaged by trawling nets not in recent times and the entire first layer of amphorae was reduced to shards, demonstrating how uncontrolled fishing activity can destroy precious evidence of ancient history.
It was a ship loaded with goods of probable Betic origin (Spain, Cartagena), roughly from the 2nd century AD. Deep sea fish Capros aper rest next to a beautiful gorgonian Callogorgia verticillata that has had time enough to grow on the amphorae despite the passage of the fishing nets.
