Great find. Marine archaeology has made some very exciting finds of late, particularly around the mediterranean. Here they have found remains of a
city that they believe Alexandria may have been built on top of.
Now scientists have discovered hidden underwater traces of a city that existed at Alexandria at least seven centuries before Alexander the Great
arrived, findings hinted at in Homer's Odyssey and that could shed light on the ancient world.
And here are details of what may be the worlds oldest city discovered in Turkey (not an underwater one), unless this new discovery in the OP predates
that. City's of this size were previously thought to have only emerged in Mesopotamia around the time of the Sumerians.
9,000 years ago, this place was home to one of the world's largest settlements!
At a time when most of the world's people were nomadic hunter-gatherers, Çatalhöyük was a bustling town of as many as 10,000 people.
It is exciting times for archaeological discoveries at the moment and i for one wont be surprised at all if the age of human civilisation does get
pushed further back, though i doubt whether any biblical flood was the cause of the demise of these civs. There is plenty of evidence around for
megafloods in our history, just recently finished reading of a megaflood which may have been the cause of the seperation of Britain from mainland
Europe when the land bridge was destroyed.
I do agree with MM though that more evidence not just supported by Hancock is needed at this stage.
Nice find Malichai, i'll be keeping my eye's on this one.
