In 1985, Dimitrov unearthed a find which proves the existence of a highly advanced civilization along the Black Sea coast: a clay plate whose perfect proportions suggest it was moulded on a potter`s wheel. The decoration of the plate helped archaeologists date it at 7,000-8,000 years.
The expedition will have at its disposal the `Academic` ship and a mini-submersible with unique equipment provided by the Americans.The first task of the scientists will be to map out the sea bed at the Danube delta with the help of a sonar. In case any remains from ancient life are uncovered, the expedition will return to examine them thoroughly in 2003.
