Submerged History of the Adriatic – Bonus Assignment

Hey folks – I’m going to offer up a bonus assignment for who want it/need it.  The bonus will be worth 5%.  To get it, you need to attend the Submerged History of the Adriatic – an overview of the Croatian underwater heritage lecture that is happening on campus on April 15 at 6:30 (the full details can be found here).

To get the bonus, you also need to write up a discussion of the talk (regular blog length) and post it to the course website by 5pm on Friday the 18th (no response is required like other blogs).  This post won’t take the place of other posts…it is an extra assignment that carries a bonus.

If you have any questions, give me a shout.

Talk Abstract

Submerged History of the Adriatic – an overview of the Croatian underwater heritage

Lecturer: Hrvoje Potrebica

This lecture will provide general overview of results of almost half a century of submarine archaeology in Croatia. The underwater cultural heritage of the Adriatic Sea is extremely rich and covers almost all periods and all kinds of sites: from submerged Paleolithic sites to modern shipwrecks of the 20th century. However, majority of finds belong to the Roman Period and most of them come from shipwrecks. They reflect the importance of the Adriatic Sea as one of the transport routes closest to the very heart of the Roman Empire.
