Sunken Cities

FullSizeRender-7In the depths of the Nile are two sunken civilizations, the cities Thonis-Heracleion and Canopus. In an archeological dig that took years, the buried artifacts are on display at the British Museum in the exhibition Sunken Cities: Egypt’s Lost Worlds. The exhibition showcases 200 artifacts ranging from stele, to colossal sculptures to delicate jewelry. What makes this show even more exciting are the underwater photographs and films of divers discovering these hidden gems next to the displayed objects. If you don’t believe me check out the promotional video which provides clips of the underwater dives, it will leave you gasping for more.
