Zambratija – Prehistoric sewn boat

The exhibition has been produced in association with the Archaeological Museum of Istria.

The sewn boat from Zambratija, on the northern Istrian coast, is the oldest example of a completely sewn boat found in the Mediterranean. Its remains date back to the period from the last quarter of the 12th and the last quarter of the 10th century BC.

The boat structure exploration was performed by the following institutions: The Archaeological Museum of Istria in Pula, the Croatian Ministry of Culture - Conservation Department in Pula and the Centre Camille Jullian - the research department of Aix-Marseille University (CNRS), based in Aix-en-Provence, France.
