The first in an irregular series of informal talks and tours in the Museum of Xàbia
Wednesday 30 October 2013 at 19:00 in the Museum
Marine archaeology in Xábia
led by Joaquim Bolufer,
Xàbia’s Muncipal Archaeologist
Director of the Museum of Xàbia
and President of the Amics del Museu de Xàbia.
Our recent visit to the excavations in Els Poblets of a Roman ‘factory’ for making amphores brought to life the Roman artefacts displayed in our Museum. Amphoras, ceramics of every type, anchors of stone, lead or iron and remains of vessels have been found in several places on our coast. The extremely favourable location and unique geographic characteristics.of Xàbia has been responsible for its ancient and long history of commercial contacts with many places in the Mediterranean and other areas.
Ximo Bolufer will put them in context and elaborate on the Roman period locally.
Stay and enjoy a drink and an informal chat afterwards
