Archaeology Field School Description

Touristic and archaeological campaign along the beach of Kastela Bay will not leave anyone indifferent. This vacation is active and educational and it's conducted in a beautiful and colorful environment where green and blue colors of nature dominate this area between Splt and Trogir. All this will be a unique experience for all participants. The rich and turbulent history of this area offers an endless source of findings from different historical periods, and it is therefore easy to understand why it is still not explored enough. The ancient village that is being explored, recently pinpointed as the SICULI, is Roman settlement mentioned by the Roman writer Pliny, built on an earlier Hellenistic grid. It was inhabited by Roman veterans from XI legion of the Emperor Claudius in the first century. During the many years of research numerous findings were discovered (numismatic, ceramic ...) Next to the site there are two submerged ancient ports that you could visit during the course of diving.
