Pisa’s Ancient Ships

More than twenty years ago, while excavating a new railway station in Pisa’s outskirts, one of the most important archaeological discovery of the last Century took place. In this area once flew an ancient stream, where more than thirty ships sunk, as the result of a series of floods in a spun of over a 1000 years (from III C. B.C. to VII C. A.D.). The shipwrecks, along with their load, were in an extremely well-preserved state. After many years of excavating the site and subsequently restoring the findings, Pisa’s Ancient Ships Museum was finally inaugurated on June the 16th 2019.
The exposition, in more than 5000s quare meters, subdivided in 8 sections, tells the tale of the city of Pisa, from the Etruscan period to the Roman one, up to the arrival of the Lombards. The exhibition focus on the relationship between the city and the water and naturally the catastrophic floods; the ancient Etruscan and Roman ships are displayed in the main hall, where the Alkedo, a magnificent private ship of the Augustan period, plays the main role, while the remaining sections investigate the ships and their loads, the navigation techniques, the life on board, the cults and superstitions.
