They donate an anchor of underwater origin to the Museu de Xàbia

El Museo Arqueológico y Etnográfico Municipal Soler Blasco de Xàbia ha recibido una donación de María Teresa Sivera Bas. Se trata de un ancla de hierro de procedencia submarina que fue recuperada de los fondos marinos del municipio hace décadas por su abuelo marinero, Antonio Sivera Ripoll, and that for several decades has conserved his family.

The piece in question would correspond to a medium-sized vessel and its characteristics suggest that it has its origin in modern times, probably from the mid-eighteenth century. However, from the Museum point out that iron anchors are difficult pieces to date due to their characteristics, since from the typological and technical point of view, they remained stable for many centuries.

The councilman of Culture, Quico Moragues, ha querido agradecer a María Teresa Sivera Bas esta aportación, que ha sido registrada ya en los inventarios y catálogos del Museo, dejando constancia de su procedencia para cualquier estudio en el cual se mencione esta pieza.
