Stunning photos: the “Atlantis” that emerged from the Nile waters

One of the most anticipated exhibitions of recent times will take place in London, where are displayed over 200 objects found in amazing condition, emerged from the depths of the Nile.

Around the year 2000, the underwater archaeologist Franck Goddio found the remains of an “Egyptian Atlantis” on the legendary Nile River depth. Are the cities of Thonis-Heracleion and Canopus, submerged for over a thousand years in the Mediterranean.
 According to experts, found objects will change our understanding of the Greek and Egyptian stories. More than 200 well-preserved items, among which is a statue of granite five and a half meters high, corresponding to the Egyptian god Hapi, and a statue of the Greek goddess Isis, dated 1,200 years old.
 However, the archaeologist believes that, to date, were discovered only 5% of the objects buried under the river. “Submerged cities are so great that make Pompeii seem small,” Goddio said.
