Off the coast of Egypt divers have discovered something that was thought to be lost a long time ago. It was said that the ancient city of Heracleion was lost under the sea for good. Well 1200 years later, off the bay of Aboukir, this ancient city has finally been discovered. The city dates back to the 6th century B.C. and holds some of the most beautiful artifacts you could imagine. Things like grand statues of gods and goddesses standing well over 15 feet tall and carved out of red granite, treasures of gold and rare stones, elaborate temples and enormous tablets. This find is enormous in the historical preservation community and has been commissioned by museums around the world. Take a look at this incredible city found underwater.
When you think of algae, you likely imagine the slimy green growth in a dirty-looking aquarium. Red algae are often shades of purple and red, and they can grow in the deep ocean. Some species are hard rather than slimy, with a beauty reminiscent of coral. Red algae play an important role in the development of coral reefs, providing homes for marine fish.

Isn't this an old discovery? I remember reading about this years ago. There may even be some old ATS threads about it.

Something about the way the article is written seems sketchy to me. They don't specify a date or a time period which this discovery took place. How can such a seemingly cheesy source be the one to break this news? I won't get excited until I see this from a more reputable source.
