Lost Egyptian City Revealed After 1,200 Years Under Sea

 

It is a city shrouded in myth, swallowed by the Mediterranean Sea and buried in sand and mud for more than 1,200 years. But now archeologists are unearthing the mysteries of Heracleion, uncovering amazingly well-preserved artifacts that tell the story of a vibrant classical-era port. A new documentary highlights the major discoveries that have been unearthed at Thonis-Heracleion during a 13-year excavation.

Maritime trade thrived in Egypt, even before Alexandria

 

New research into Thonis-Heracleion, a sunken port-city that served as the gateway to Egypt in the first millennium BC, is being examined at an international conference at the University of Oxford. The port city, situated 6.5 kilometres off today’s coastline, was one of the biggest commercial hubs in the Mediterranean before the founding of Alexandria. The Oxford Centre for Maritime Archaeology at the University of Oxford is collaborating on the project with the European Institute for Underwater Archaeology (IEASM) in cooperation with Egypt's Ministry of State for Antiquities.

At the Museum: 'Cleopatra' exhibit goes beyond her political motives

 

The premise: Although the slightly soapy tag line boasts "She ruled the men who ruled the world," this expansive exhibition goes beyond the notion of Cleopatra as a scheming seductress and presents a fuller picture of her as a charismatic political and religious leader, a woman of great intelligence, and a caring wife and mother.

Her story is largely told through artifacts discovered by the French underwater archaeologist Franck Goddio, who has been mapping and excavating the sunken Egyptian cities of Alexandria (the site of Cleopatra's palace), Heracleion and Canopus since 1992...
