Buried beneath the deep waters lie ruins of fascinating and marvellous ancient kingdoms that today are nothing than lost memories of the past.
Many advanced ancient civilizations ended due to earthquakes, tsunamis or other natural disasters.
Precious objects and ruins of ancient cities are lost in the depths of lakes, seas and oceans worldwide.
Archaeologists are aware of that there are many ancient secrets at the bottom of the oceans and we can learn more about our ancestors with help of
emerging technologies that provide us with an opportunity to explore the depths as never before.
Lost for 1,600 years, the kingdom of Cleopatra was discovered off the shores of Alexandria, Egypt.
Cleopatra VII Philopator, known to history as Cleopatra, was the last pharaoh of Ancient Egypt.
She was a member of the Ptolemaic dynasty, a family of Greek origin that ruled Egypt after Alexander the Great's death during the Hellenistic period
It is commonly believed that the Cleopatra's empire was destroyed by an earthquake and tidal waves
Scientists think that the entire city was completely submerged, along with all the artifacts, statues, columns and other beauties of the palace of Cleopatra.
Underwater statues and artifacts could tell us more about Queen Cleopatra.
It was a great surprise to discover that several artifacts remained largely intact. Amongst the discoveries were the foundations of the palace,
shipwrecks, red granite columns, and statues of the goddess Isis and a sphinx.
Among the massive limestone blocks toppled in the fourth century was a huge quartzite block with an engraving of a pharaoh. An inscription indicates it
depicts Seti I, father of Ramses II.
Divers also discovered a colossal stone head believed to be of Caesarion, son of Cleopatra and previous lover Julius Caesar, and two sphinxes, one of
them probably representing Cleopatra's father, Ptolemy XII.
