In the bay Pocukmarak is located protected underwater archaeological site of sarcophagus coming from antic period. Expensive sarcophagi were carved on Brač from where they were brought to Silba and where they served as the last resting place of very wealthy people, who lived on it approximately 1500 years ago. Archaeologists assume that the sarcophagi were originally placed in a necropolis, which may have been located in the vicinity of the nearby church of St. Marko after which the bay was named. Scientists from the University of Zadar hope that future archaeological excavations will show whether there really was a Roman settlement with a cemetery, or whether it was just a richer family who used to live on the island. Either way, the sarcophagi are dislocated and repurposed. Sometime in the period of the migration of the people, or perhaps even later, in the Middle Ages, huge stone chests with accompanying lids were moved from their original place and given a new function as a pier in the Pocukmarak bay.
