Ancient Greece

egypt city under sea
It may not be the lost city of Atlantis, but it is close enough! Egypt’s sunken cities of Thonis-Heracleion and Canopus, known in modern times as the lost kingdom of Cleopatra, was not something anyone expected to find beneath the sea off Alexandria. It was a French archaeologist, Franck Goddio, who dedicated his entire life to searching for remnants of lost civilizations from the past, who found the colossal face emerging from the watery shadows. It was one of the greatest archaeological finds of recent times and a proof of the strong ties between Greece and Egypt in ancient times.
