Peculiar Discoveries Found Under The Sea
The ocean is more enormous that we presume it to be. For example, the world’s largest ship titanic which was 882 feet long was lost in the waters of Atlantic in 1912. Even though the researches knew where the sinking site was, it still took them 73 years to actually find the remains!
Things under the water can remain hidden for centuries and many haven’t yet been discovered. Here are some of the peculiar discoveries researchers have found under the sea through decades of searching.
1. Egyptian city
A team of 30 archaeologists from France found the entire Egyptian city inside the sea in the year 2000. A lot of things including houses, king’s palace and gold coins were found in this sunken city.
2. Ancient city of Alexandria
This city became the victim of a terrible tsunami and has been submerged under the sea since. The archaeologists found this city approximately 4km down the sea including some of the monuments and statues of that society.
3. River under sea
A river has been found under the sea of Mexico in perfect condition with underwater plantations. It is said to have been the sixth largest river in the world, if it hadn’t flowed into the sea.
4. Yonaguni pyramid
A huge pyramid was found inside the Sea of Japan. It is said that this pyramid was submerged under water due to an earthquake.
5. City inside the Indian ocean
One entire city was found inside the Indian Ocean in 1985. Roads, idols of humans, etc. were found in this city in a very good condition.
