Stunning archaeological discoveries in Tunisian waters

On the seabed off the coast of Tunis, Tunisian archaeologists have discovered a veritable treasure trove filled with artefacts that date back to different historical periods. A research team from the Tunisian National Heritage Institute (Institut National du Patrimoine – INP) has located a number of sites that will be studied in detail in the near future.

Underwater archaeologists conducting research on the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea have discovered a very large number of sites that stretch along the coastline in the suburbs of Tunis. During the dives, the researchers were supported by a team of professional divers from the Tunisian Navy, with technical and logistical support from the Tunisian Ministry of Defence.

The scientists also stressed that the located sites and the artifacts discovered in them are of great historical value and constitute a priceless world cultural and historical heritage. It is already known that the underwater research work will continue until mid-December 2020, but we can be sure that it will be no different in the following years.
