Archaeological Museum Baglio Anselmi

The Archaeological Regional Museum “Baglio Anselmi“ is situated in an ex-wine producing company. It was founded in the 1970s for the conservation of the wreck of the Punic ship and only later was to house the exhibition of finds coming from the urban excavations which show the history  of the city from prehistoric to medieval times.

The wreck of the Punic ship was found in 1971 in the length of sea off the coast of the Lunga island by an English mission. The stern and the side of the ship are conserved. It has a slim line, 35 m long and a width of 4.80m with about 68 oarsmen. The Guide lines and the traces of the Punic alphabet visible on the planking have allowed the dating of the boat (III Century. B.C.) and her construction. The ship probably sank during the battle of the Egadi islands. At the end of the room there is a vast collection of amphorae.
