The Department of Underwater Archaeology at the Croatian Conservation Institute has discovered an intact 2,000 year-old amphora site at a depth of 20 metres to the seabed near Mljet Island. 

Three different types of amphora among the 150, dating back to the end of the first century have been found near Mljet.

The amphoras were protected by the sand and sludge, but modern anchors can greatly damage these and similar sites so the Department of Underwater Archaeology will install protective nets around them.

Moreover, the site will be open to the public.
