Underwater research being conducted of Cape Creus, Catalonia strongly suggests that the pre-Roman Iberians were seafarers. This is the second boat dated to roughly this period found of the Spanish coast.
The vessel which was first discovered about 120 years ago, has been dated to 40 – 30 BC and has been found to have been carrying about 100 amphorae.
The 10 metre long vessel is located about 30 metres below the surface which has led to some delays and issues with the exploration as divers are required to decompress for 20 minutes for every 30 minutes spent with the wreck.
