Frank Goddio is an underwater archaeologist who searches for remnants of lost civilizations. While his life has been dedicated to this endeavor, never did he expect what he would end up finding deep below the ocean’s surface on the coast of Egypt on the Abu Qir Bay.

While it’s not the lost city of Atlantis, it’s pretty darn close. Beneath the surface of the Mediterranean Sea, Frank has discovered the sunken and long forgotten by time Egyptian city of Thonis-Heracleion.

The city of Thonis-Heracleion was lost to the sea a long time ago.
