Heracleion a city that was engulfed in water 1500 years ago has been brought to the surface. These wonderful artifacts are only the tip of the iceberg.
The things removed from underwater truly show just how beautiful and glorious this city was. Statues, inscriptions, coins, ceramics, and more. Truly an ancient civilization froze in time.
Take a look at the images below to get a look at all the wondrous things they found. Who knows what else is hiding in bodies of water we have not yet explored. There are so many amazing things out there and it is intense just thinking about it. How fantastic would it be to see something like this in person?
This city was hidden away for so long in the River Nile I can only imagine what else may be down there. This city was discovered back in 2000 and as you can see everything has been preserved quite well. Beauty at it’s finest. These ancient artifacts hold so much mystery.
