Discoveries

I love discoveries like this. Apparently back in 2001 a French archeologist, Franck Goddio, was searching for the ruins of Napoleon's fleet off the coast of Egypt. What he found was far more interesting . . . well, unless your really into Napoleonic stuff . . . for he unearthed, beneath the water the ancient Egyptian city of Heracleion that the Mediterranean had consumed some 1500 years ago. Herodotus spoke of it as one of the city's that Helen of Sparta and Paris of Troy visited before the fame war of attrition between those two Greek peoples.
