Cup from 3000 years ago found in a Polish river! – video

An extremely interesting discovery was made in the waters of the River Gwda in the South Pomeranian Lake District. During the diving, in which representatives of the Volunteer Fire Brigade for Water Rescue in Piła and the Staszic Regional Museum in Piła participated, a clay vessel was found and excavated, whose age was determined to be ca. 3000 years!

The diving team which made the discovery consisted of a diver-firefighter from OSPRW Piła Jacek Jackowiak and archaeologist Dr Jarosław Rola. The film shows the moment when during the underwater exploration the men find and bring to the surface a fully preserved vessel. After closer examination, it was determined that the artefact comes from the late Bronze Age.

“It is a hand-carved goblet on an empty leg. After completing the appropriate procedures with the Provincial Office for the Protection of Monuments in Poznań, the Delegation in Piła, the relic was entered into the collection of the archaeological department of the District Museum in Piła.” – is written in the description attached to the film.

This fascinating discovery from thousands of years ago will surely fire the imagination of many divers (and not only) and whet your appetite for underwater exploration. Although in our underwater adventures we do not come across such valuable artefacts very often, each of us knows how many wonderful “treasures” are waiting at the bottom of Polish waters.
