Top 10 Most Unusual Things That Were Discovered Under Water
Posted on Sep 14, 2016
Underwater archaeological discoveries might be the most intriguing because some are as big as entire cities, while others are quite bizarre. Take a look at what lurks in the depths.
1. Heracleion, Egypt
Heracleion was the place of Cleopatra's inauguration. It was submerged in the Mediterranean Sea more than a thousand years ago, and it was discovered in 2001 by a team looking for warships. The city is extremely well preserved, and the findings are still intact, like the temple of Amun-Gerb, different statues, sarcophagi, boats, coins, etc. The historian Herodotus wrote a lot about this city and for a very long time, up until 2001, it was thought to be just a myth.
