Remains of Roman city found in Huelva

A team of researchers from Ánfora Arqueología has located the remains of a Roman settlement, under water, in the ría del Carreras between the towns of Isla Cristina and Ayamonte in Huelva. Among the items found are amphoras and fragments of marble columns. Experts believe that they formed part of a city that was buried after a tsunami.

This is considered one of the major finds of recent years in underwater archeology in Andalucia. Experts believe the remains may have belonged to a large building. In addition, they have found bones, evidence of burials which may correspond to the necropolis of the settlement.

Preliminary tests suggest the oldest objects are about two thousand years old.
