This movie, is based on the results provided by a combined research in the field of earth and archaeological sciences, which merged geology, archaeology, instrumental data and geophysical analysis, to discover how the Mediterranean sea level has changed during the last 2000 years, due to geological and global changes. The coastline exploration of the Mare Nostrum of Romans, which still show the archaeological remnants of fish tanks, harbours and quarries of roman or pro-roman age, witness the large Earth’s movements, planet in continuous evolution, whose active dynamics produce relative movements between land and sea, with subsequent impact on the human activities along the coasts.
Picturesque camera records, fascinating underwater views, drawings, graphics and animations, introduce the audience along a journey through time along the coast of the Mediterranean between geology, archaeology and geophysics, to explain how the reason of the changes have been discovered and interpreted thanks to the archaeological remnants.
