Wouldn't you think that if they found the ruins of an ancient city in fairly shallow waters off of a main coast that your first suspicion would be tsunami or changing sea levels?

Whether they were conquered or not may be irrelevant if a natural disaster is what wiped out the city.

How does a city get left with treasure? Was it cursed? Did it have some sudden catastrophe? A plague?

It seems impossible that it would have so much left behind.

Thanks for including these videos, they don't look nearly as clear as the pictures I saw from first glance, haven't watched them yet.

The relevance would be how come it took so long to find them and why hasn't more been mainstream information about it? I do not know the motivation for any of it, but it all just seems so unnatural for some reason, I am down with archeology and finding lost treasures, but I don't get this pristine condition for things in the deep sea for how ever long, and if there was some kind of destructive force wouldn't they be buried a little bit more or in a lot worse condition?

Shouldn't there also be some evidence of skeletal remains? They have known for centuries about this cities existence and they just found it in 2012?

The creative conspiracy theorist in me would say:

The military obtained these artifacts from excavations they did during the Arab Spring when all the attention was on the riots. We know something was excavated during the Arab Spring because satellite photos of the terrain taken before and after the Arab Spring were compared side by side and the 'after' photos clearly indicated that the terrain had been razed. Couple that with the reports of large objects being escorted on flatbed trucks out of the desert during the riots by what appeared to be a military organization.

Then drop them in the ocean, pick them back out and say you found them there and no one will question how you came to possess lost relics from the Sahara (until all the archeology catches up to you).

Maybe if they were covered, otherwise the water would corrode them over time.

If they abandoned the place casually, why would they leave the treasures? I think there must have been something about taking the stuff that was off limits or it happened too suddenly to get everything.

After 1,200 years, underwater there would not be any bones left.

According to the article in the WORLDPOST 04/29/2013 it was discovered in 2000, 6.5 Kilo off the coast of the city of Alexandra Egypt.


It was only a legend. Appearing in a few rare inscriptions and ancient texts, the city of Thonis-Heracleion was not something anyone expected to find, and no one was looking for it.

Eric Wartenweiler Smith · Archaeological Diver at European Institute of Underwater Archeology Sandy Bos There is more yet to come, as we've only excavated less than a 5th of the site. An exhibit of our recent finds is on display now at the British Museum, "Sunken Cities; Egypts Lost Worlds", that will be travelling to several other major cities over the next few years. Its really exciting to watch these discoveries come from out of the darkness and sediment and go on display.
dated July 2016.

An exert from the comments on your worldpost link from Huffingtonpost .

It was also mentioned that the findings had been covered with 30ft of sand.

Eric Wartenweiler Smith has a personal blog here more info might be found.

Is that all bones or just human?

Isn't this the city that was built on coastal sand?. Saw a study of that place some time ago if it's the same one - a city of great ceremonial significance to the Pharoahs of Egypt until it simply vanished beneath the waves.

The vibrations of an earthquake caused the sand to act more like a liquid than a solid causing the heavy stone structures to sink very quickly becoming part of the seabed in a very short time.

Can anyone tell me where the Egyptians were mining their gold back then?

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.


That's what I was thinking as well. Just the headline saying that these items are REALLY DEEP, seems to be a lie. If they were really deep, you'd need a submarine to recover them. Also, you wouldn't see the sun shining down through the water to the artifacts like that.

No doubt that they are there, but there's something not quite right about this "find".


Well............does 20ft count as deep? The guy that found this (Franck Goddio) also discovered Canopus in the same area. The source article is far too sensationalist in that these cities weren't particularly mysteries, what happened to them was recorded. Thonis-Heraclion was there until at least the 8th Century AD.

Try this link to a Telegraph article - an interview with Goddio.

I seen this, but the article i read was on "Beforeitsnews.com" which made me rather apprehensive as to the veracity.

If true this is an amazing find, chance however would be a fine thing indeed.

Maybe not these particular objects, but yah. They are off the coast of Egypt. Who was it that tried to erase Egyptian history?

Was it the Romans or Alexander?

This is done when empires conquer and try to subjugate peoples by eliminating their cultural identity and historical record.

See ISIS destroying ruins in Syria or Taliban destroying Buddhist ruins in Afghanistan.


Neither Rome nor Alexander tried to erase Egyptian history. Why would they? Rome's succesful Empire building succeeded in large part not just because of military strength but also / mainly because they incorporated conquered territory and culture into their own. Amun (Ra) became incorporated into Jupiter Maximus as but one small example.

The only people that didn't really happen with were the Druids, and that was really more down to ancestral fears. Druid culture was smashed but British Gods / Goddesses were incorporated into Roman values. One very clear example being the Temple of Minerva Sulis at Aquae Sulis (Bath). Sulis is a British Goddess, Minerva a Roman Goddess.

ETA:

Sorry to the OP for going off topic but false misconceptions always need addressing, otherwise it helps spread misinfo / ignorance.

It must be a decade since but I saved some photos from a thread on this very web site that were (and are) obviously from the same site. What I remember is that it was posted by someone claiming to be involved in the dives. The user said they were keeping the location and details quiet to protect their find but they would be revealing it to the world "soon".

I believe there is a documentary about this, it was on discovery channel a while ago.

But you just agreed with me.

Geez, mind melding yourself there. By the by conquerors always try to impose their own systems on the people they subjugate... derp.
