The underwater archeology moniker refers to the reconstructed shipwrecks and their cargos which are featured in the rooms and galleries of St. Peter's Castle.
Of special interest is the cargo of glass objects, housed in their own gallery. They are beautifully displayed and lit and you can walk completely around the display cases, meaning you can view the objects from all sides and angles. The colors are diffuse and diverse and the workmanship is exquisite on some of the pieces. This exhibit includes the only glass beads from the Mycean era of Crete that are dislplayed outside of Crete.
Some of the reconstructions have imaginative displays that add to the interest of the items.
It's very easy to see why an archeologist has to be a master at jigsaw puzzles!
Expect lots of walking on rough stone surfaces, lots of stairs and uneven floors. Watch your step!
