Lost and found: sunken civilizations

Underwater archaeologist Franck Goddio has a pretty cool knack for discovering ancient shipwrecks. He conducts ongoing research off the coast of Egypt in partnership with the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities to determine the ancient location and topography of the currently submerged ancient zones of the eastern harbour of Alexandria (Portus Magnus) and of today’s Aboukir Bay. The pictures of the remnants are haunting.
