Weird that it was "discovered" by archaeologists. It was only flooded in 1959 for hydroelectricity. Surely there are records for this relatively recent decision.Makes me wonder if it was flooded for another reason.

Fantastic pictures, of this ancient city. Now I am more curious and will have to do some research about this "lost" city. Thanks Marty.

Interesting--hadn't heard about it before. I imagine there'plenty more undiscovered cities in our ocean floors. Great pics! Thx Marty

I'm assuming this was released 13 years ago. The pictures are incredible.
