A trove of artifacts has been found near the Greek island of Skiathos, including the remains of an old port, a Venetian fortress, an ancient breakwater and Byzantine jetty, various pottery and lamps, and even a few shipwrecks.
Underwater explorations from May 14 though 25 near Skiathos island resulted in a treasure trove of archaelogical antiquities.
The first organized underwater exploration was held under the supervision of the Greek Ephorate of Underwater Antiquities and explored through areas including the old port of Skiathos, notable for the Venetian fortress called Burtzi, Kehria area and others.
