British holidaymaker discovers lost underwater 'city'
A British holidaymaker has uncovered what is believed to be a lost, ancient temple while snorkeling in the Mediterranean.

Michael Le Quesne, 16, was swimming off a popular beach in Montenegro with his parents and his ten-year-old sister Teodora when he spotted an odd looking 'stone' at a depth of around two metres.

It turned out to be a large, submerged building which may have been the centrepiece of an important Greek or Roman trading post, swallowed up by the sea during a massive earthquake.

The article states the discovery could be part of a Greek or Roman settlement dating as far back as the 2nd c. BC. It's in an area that has seen recent discoveries of Roman cargo ships as well.

The diver's father (an archeologist) also states:

Mr Le Quesne, an archaeology expert and author on the subject, said: “If it is a monumental building it is not going to be part of a small hamlet, but it is not a missing Atlantis, as we would already know about it. It remains a bit of a mystery.”

What an exciting archaeological find should it turn out to be a temple!

Having read Graham Hancock's "Underworld: The Mysterious Origins of Civilization", I have a better appreciation for how much history likely remains submerged and undiscovered. This recent find is probably only the tip of an incredibly big historical iceberg.
