Background: Frogmen off the coast of Spain, near Tarragona, have discovered archaeological items dating from Roman times. Among them was a granite column, probably from the Gerona quarries, which might have been on its way to a Mediterranean port where it was to be sculptured into yet another exquisite example of Roman art.
From frogman's reports, it is estimated that about another fifteen objects of archaeological interest lie on the sea bed.
