  • 10 Unbelievable Treasures Found Underwater


    10 Unbelievable Treasures Found Underwater

    Everybody wants to get rich, right? And a sure fire way to get rich quickly is to find sunken treasure.
    Unfortunately for you, all treasure on this list have already been found. Today we will be looking at 10
    shipwrecks that were discovered to have treasure. Number 1 is a shipwreck that created a lot of
    controversy back in 2007 so watch out for it.

    Number 10. The Salcombe Shipwreck
    Between 1200 and 900 B.C., a ship floundered off the coast of Devon in England. To put in perspective
    how long ago this happened, at the time of its sinking, Babylon was at its prime, the Hanging Gardens
    hadn’t even been built yet, and it would be centuries before the birth of Buddha.
    The discovery of the Salcombe Shipwreck was announced in 2010. Amateur archaeologists and divers
    have uncovered 300 artifacts that weigh over 185 lbs combined, including copper and tin ingots, which
    were used to make bronze, weapons, and several pieces of jewelry.
    This is hardly the largest treasure found in a shipwreck, not in a longshot, but its value and significance
    lies elsewhere. It is by far one of the oldest shipwrecks ever found and the artifacts found within have
    proven that a definite trade network existed between Britain and Europe during the Bronze Age.
    Academics from Oxford University are investigating the finds to try and locate its exact origins, but
    unfortunately, none of the ship’s parts are still intact.

    Number 9. The Belitung Shipwreck
    The Belitung shipwreck, also called the Tang shipwreck or Batu Hitam shipwreck, was the first Arabian
    ship to be discovered and excavated. It was accidentally found by fishermen just off the coast of
    Indonesia in 1998, and it was quite the accidental find. The Arabian ship sailed possibly between Oman
    and China during the 9th Century AD and evidence suggests it travelled on the so-called Maritime Silk
    Route even when it mainly transported ceramic. The vessel sank on the return journey and according to
    this affirmation an interesting point about the Belitung shipwreck is its location: it is unclear why the
    vessel was so far from the route which it was supposed to take. So far, it has yielded the richest and
    largest assortment of early ninth century Tang Dynasty gold and ceramic artifacts ever found–bowls,
    spice jars, inkwells, funeral urns, crystals, and gilt-silver boxes.
    Some of the more significant items included pearls from the Gulf, rubies and sapphires, a gold cup,
    which is the largest ever found, and a silver flask. After its excavation, the cargo was purchased by the
    Singaporean Government, which has loaned it indefinitely to the Singapore Tourism Board.

    Number 8. The SS Central America
    The S.S. Central America sank during a hurricane in September 1857 carrying 15 tons of gold. Its sinking
    greatly added to the “Panic of 1857” in the United States which in turn led to the first worldwide
    economic crisis. It was an 85m long sidewheel steamer, she was scheduled to deliver 477 passengers,

    101 crew and up to 30,000 pounds of gold prospected in the California Gold Rush to New York’s
    desperate financial establishments, which is worth around $500 million today.
    After its discovery in 1987 and the subsequent excavation, 39 insurance companies claimed they had a
    right to the gold and artifacts recovered because of damages paid by them in the 19th century. Legal
    battles ensued which ultimately saw the discovery team ending up with 92 percent of the gold. One of
    the gold bars discovered became a very important piece of currency after selling for $8 million–a
    worldwide record at the time.

    Number 7. The Antikythera Wreck
    In the year 1900, divers discovered an ancient shipwreck just off the island of Antikythera. The
    Archaeological Service of Greece launched an expedition shortly thereafter in what was the world’s first
    major underwater archaeological expedition. Many other expeditions to the site were made since then,
    but an expedition in 1976 recovered the most significant part of the cargo.
    They recovered Antikythera mechanism, which is believed to be the world’s oldest analog computer, has
    received so much media coverage over the years that many are not aware of the ships’ other treasures.
    This famous wreck also yielded a massive haul of other treasures which also included coins and jewelry.

  • DWARKA: The Sunken City of Krishna | Atlantis of India


    The submergence of the lost city of Dwarka (a.k.a. Dvaraka) is a well-known legend from India, stemming from the Mahabharata. Like Atlantis, the story says that Dwarka sank beneath the sea at some point in the ancient past. Some people think this is a historical event that occurred in the early Vedic period. Others say it happened at the end of the ice age. Some think it never happened at all. In this video, Dr. Miano investigates the claims made by the Ancient Astronaut Archive channel and by Graham Hancock, and looks into the archaeological excavations that have been done in Gujarat to see if there is any truth behind the tale.

    10: Ancient Roman Sea Fortress
    Russian divers recently stumbled upon an ancient Roman sea fortress hidden beneath the waves! This was done thanks to Russian scientists from Sevastopol State University, who were diving off the coast of Syria when they came upon three ancient naval structures, a fully blown port, and a Roman sea fortress that had apparently never before been discovered.

    9: India’s Lost City
    Divers in India recently discovered some very unexpected archaeological evidence underwater that could, if properly verified, rewrite the ancient history of the entire subcontinent – and even the world! Marine archaeologists have used sonar scanning equipment to send beams of sound waves to the bottom of the sea, where they identified massive geometrical structures inside of a vast region about 5 miles(8km) long and two miles(1.6km) across. Researchers were actually performing a study about the Ice Age.

    8: The Kibatos Castle
    The Kibatos Castle is a Byzantine-era fortress sitting at the bottom of the Sea of Marmara in the northwest of Turkey. This ancient castle was first unearthed totally by accident in 2019, while archaeologists were doing underwater research in the area. They unexpectedly found the castle about 10 feet(3m) deep, totally submerged and mostly in ruins.

    7: Ancient Underwater Cave
    When researchers Fred Davos and Sam Meacham from the Quintana Roo Aquifer System Research Center decided to do a bit of diving in the submerged cave La Mina, they became the first humans to enter this mysterious site in about 10,000 years! This long forgotten cave is located underneath the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico.

    6: A Tiny Seahorse
    In much cuter news, a new species of seahorse has unexpectedly been discovered off the coast of South Africa! This tiny little critter is about the size of your fingernail, and yet it is one of the most mystifying sea creatures recently found. It’s only about 2 centimeters(20mm) in length and is the first ever pygmy seahorse seen in the waters off the coast of the continent.

    5: Dragon Skeleton
    The skeleton of a dragon may have just been discovered underneath the deep blue! Unfortunately, this newest discovery is so vague and so secretive that we don't even know where it was made. An internet sleuth was browsing Google Earth and shared that the bones of this legendary monster were apparently found off the coast of an unnamed island, with the bones being over twice the size of the island itself.

    4: Ancient Preserved Forest
    Scientists have discovered a bizarre underwater forest that dates back 60,000 years, and they think that the preserved trees within this forest could help engineer new medicines. The forest is built of cypress trees, and it's located just on the banks of a wide river near the Gulf of Mexico.

    3: The Frozen Battlefield
    A new and unexpected breakthrough in archaeology has revealed a frozen battlefield, where 800 soldiers died while fighting on the Baltic Sea. The wreckage of the Swedish warship Mars was just found in pieces at the bottom of the ocean. This warship was made sometime between 1563 and 1564, and at the time it was the biggest warship ever constructed.

    2: Submerged 7,000 Year-Old Site
    Stone tools scattered across the ocean floor off the coast of Australia have recently been dated back 7000 years, making the submerged site the first of its kind! Australia has a long history of humanity, going back at least 65,000 years. But because of the way the earth has changed throughout those years, many of the most important sites are now under the surface of the ocean.

    1: A Forgotten Culture
    A team of Native American tribal citizens recently came upon a rather unexpected discovery, which could be proof that a culture from the Ice Age lived in the Great Lakes area 10,000 years ago. The discovery was made in the Straits of Mackinac, when the group used a remotely operated underwater vehicle to take a look at some oil and gas pipelines stretching across the bottom of the lake.

  • Australias Lost Gold - The Search for Sunken Treasure | Free Documentary History


    Australia's Lost Gold - The Search for Sunken Treasure | History Documentary

    Much of the west coast of Australia was discovered by accident, when Dutch treasure galleons ploughed into its fringing coral reefs and left chests of gold and silver on the coral floor. Ben Cropp has discovered hundreds of shipwrecks, including the famous Pandora of Bounty fame but there are thousands more still hidden in a watery grave. For example it’s believed the Japanese pirate Yamada Nagamasa buried his enormous loot on Magnetic Island. It is rumored to be worth $100 million, and has never been found. Ben finds a strange symbol carved in a prominent rock on Magnetic Island, opposite the only bay a ship could safely anchor in. Is this symbol the proverbial ‘x’ marking the spot? So what became of all the gold and silver that fate often cruelly snatched from its rightful owners? Some was recovered, some lost forever, but much still remains for the intrepid treasure hunter who is prepared to research the facts, sift through the legends, and give it a try. Ben’s film will take us around Australia to where these sunken treasures lie

  • Underwater Cave Diver Finds Massive African Treasure


    These group of divers have found a massive ancient treasure hidden underneath the pyramids in Sudan, Africa. Worth hundreds of millions of dollars, in priceless artifacts - you won't believe the story behind the find.

    Subscribe for more amazing videos! ► ◄

    Welcome back, Richest fans! Recently, a massive underwater archaeology mission took place. The area that saw this excavation is called Nuri. It’s located in the legendary Nubia. Which is now positioned in modern-day Sudan. Well, while the place looks like an Egyptian pyramid, it’s not. Exactly the same. It’s actually the resting place of the rulers from the Kingdom of Kush. Today, we’re going to examine the amazing excavation tale of the tomb’s chambers. As well as explore what the archaeologists discovered. Hint - it involves ancient treasure. We will also see just how much money items can be worth. On top of this, we’ll discuss some of the fantastic history of the area.

    Now, for the spoiler paragraph. If you want to be surprised, we suggest you watch the video immediately. We’ll start by looking at the team led by Paul Creasman and their methods for dealing with the problematic water. It doesn’t involve the usual scuba diving equipment. We’ll examine the excavation, which was partly funded by National Geographic, in detail. We’ll see the impact of the royalty and pharaohs had on the area back in the day. We’ll also look at the antique items they found. As well as comparing them to King Tutankhamen’s iconic gold sarcophagus. We’ll go over legendary archaeologist, George Reisner’s, attempt at excavating the site over a century ago and why he suddenly stopped. On top of this, we’ll examine other underwater archaeology success in recent years such as the great Bouldnor Cliff.

    3 most incredible and mysterious underwater discoveries to blow your mind. Today, we take a look at these 3 most incredible and mysterious underwater discoveries to blow your mind.

    Because the ocean is so constant and unchanging, sometimes we can forget the enormity of the unexplored area below the crashing waves. For centuries humans have attempted to dive below the surface in order to gain a greater understanding of what is hidden from sight, and these discoveries are often astonishing.

    While generally they consist of strange new species of fish or unbelievable natural formations, occasionally humans find things that have been lost by other humans under the sea, sometimes even for centuries. It is these discoveries, markers of once-powerful civilizations that have since sunk below the waves and been forgotten under the sea, that are perhaps the most exciting.

  • What is behind the Eastern Mediterranean oil and gas rush? | Counting the Cost


    Tensions are rising as countries compete for control of oil and gas reserves in the Eastern Mediterranean.

    On August 18, Turkey dispatched a drilling ship flanked by navy vessels to an area off the coast of Cyprus, deepening its disputes with Cyprus and Greece.

    A war of words could spiral out of control as Greece and France send their warships to the contested region.

    But carving up the riches of the Mediterranean could prove to be a costly mistake.

    A Lebanese exploration well has come up dry, oil companies have delayed drilling and many nations are switching to renewables. Could this mean some countries miss out on the oil and gas bonanza?

    Plus, does the crisis-hit World Trade Organization need a Brexiteer to run it?

  • Cursed sunken British ship is discovered intact after 90 YEARS!


    A British-built ship plagued by rumours it had been cursed before it sank claiming 16 lives has been found intact 90 years later. The Manasoo, which was built in Glasgow in 1888, spent 39 years of its life as the Macassa docks before it changed ownership and was renamed. However, according to sailors' superstition, a renamed ship will be cursed with misfortune - and true to form the Manasoo was tragically lost within a year. For decades, the site of the wreck has remained a mystery. But it has now been located beneath the waters where it plied its trade in Lake Huron, Canada - and some of its most precious cargo is still aboard.

    For 450 years, no one knew where the Swedish warship Mars, named for the Roman god of war, sank in the Baltic Sea. The largest vessel of its time went down in a fierce battle in 1564 with more than 800 people aboard. Its discovery in 2011 yielded an astonishingly well-preserved ship, including the seamen who went down with it.

  • Discoveries Underwater 3 Prehistoric Man


    Prehistoric Man examines the fossil history of the flora and fauna of the Pleistocene Epoch, Bronze Age and Iron Age.

  • Massive exhibition shows Sinan shipwreck treasures


    신안해저선에서 찾아낸 보물들,... 40년이 지나 다시 기념하다
    Ever wondered what treasures from a 14th century sunken trove look like?
    Well, wonder no more. Relics from a wrecked merchant ship from the 14th century off the Sinan coast are on display at the national museum in downtown Seoul... marking the 40th anniversary of the excavation.
    Our Lee Jiwon gives us a glimpse of the Discoveries from the Sinan Shipwreck on our Culture Spot tonight.
    Korean divers plunged into waters off the southwestern coast back in 1979 on the country's first underwater treasure hunt.
    It was the first of many expeditions to pull up a trove of artifacts from a ship that had met its end... 652 years before.
    Now, the relics are part of a massive exhibition at the National Museum of Korea... commemorating the 40th anniversary of the excavation.

    The relics are from a sunken Chinese ship that was discovered in 1975, when a Korean fisherman pulled up six pieces of porcelain and celadon from the vessel.
    After close study and analysis, Korea's Cultural Properties Management Bureau determined the merchant vessel,... loaded with Chinese porcelain, coins and other goods,... had embarked from China's Qingyuan prefecture, in what is now Ningbo, in June 1323... on its way to Japan.
    It headed north on the marine trade route that had been established by Asian nations in the 14th century.
    But it is presumed to have met a typhoon along the way... and sank off of Sinan County, in present-day Jeollanam-do Province.

    This is the actual size of the bow, giving visitors an idea of just how big the vessel would have had to be to have carried 24-thousand pieces of porcelain and other goods.

    The artifacts recovered from the ship range from clay figurines to celadon dishes, basins and other ceramic goods.
    The ship also carried a cargo of spices, herbal medicines and lacquerware, reflecting the products and practices of the 14th century.

    The artifacts show the nature of the cultural exchanges between China, Japan and other Asian nations through trade. Visitors can see that the people in the 14th century enjoyed tea, flower and incense,... and that members of the upper-class especially liked celadon dishes and metalware.

    But among the thousands of pieces in the collection, this celadon vase is one to admire.
    It's similar to other pieces made for Chinese emperors, both in color and style.
    The two handles are shaped like dragons that represent emperors,... and archaeologists say it would have been handled with great care.

    The ship also had a large cargo of Goryeo celadon from the Korean kingdom in power at the time.
    Archaeologists suggest the pieces, designed in the 13th century Goryeo style, had been sold in China and were going to be exchanged to Japan.
    Many of the ceramics have engraved flower patterns, showing the exquisite techniques of the era.

    Until now, the artifacts had been scattered at different museums around the country.
    But the National Museum of Korea brought them together in what is the largest-ever display of Sinan artifacts.
    It's also the museum's largest exhibition to date.

    I came here with my children to show the precious treasures our country has preserved. There are so many antiques, and I hope my children have learned a lot.

    Through the tiny details in each of the ceramic pieces, I was able to see what the culture and trends back then were like.

    The museum and archaeologists hope that the exhibition will serve as a turning point for the future of underwater archaeology and shipwreck research in the country, as well as the preservation of Korea's ancient treasures.

    Port Royal, Jamaica was once known as “the most wicked and sinful city in the world.” The city’s natural harbor was first used as a fishing port by its original inhabitants, the Tainos. In 1494, the Spanish took control of Jamaica, with Christopher Columbus having declared it “the fairest island eyes have beheld.”

    Nicknamed “China’s Atlantis,” Lion City, also once known as Shi Cheng, is arguably the most stunning underwater city. Built during the Han dynasty and located at the bottom of a lake in the eastern Chinese province of Zhejiang, it was once a thriving metropolis.

    These underwater ruins are located near the Japanese island of Yonaguni Jima, about 75 miles off the coast of Taiwan. They are shrouded in mystery and have been a hot topic of controversy among scholars since their discovery in 1986 by a local diver.

    Located off the coast of southern Laconia in Peloponnese, Greece, the 5,000-year-old city of Pavlopetri is the oldest submerged lost city in the Mediterranean Sea, and one of the oldest in the world. It was discovered by a man named Nicholas Fleming in 1967 and mapped the following year by a team of archaeologists. Despite its age, they were able to recognize a nearly-complete urban plan, including streets, buildings, and tombs.

    4. BAIA, ITALY
    Some 1,700 years ago, 150 miles south of Rome and 50 miles north of Pompeii, Italy’s west coast was host to an upscale resort town known as Baiae, which was known for its natural therapeutic hot springs. Kelly McLaughlin of the Daily Mail UK described Baiae as a “Las Vegas for the super-rich of the 1st century’s ancient Rome.” According to historians, the mansion-covered town was “synonymous with luxury and wickedness.”

    So far, we’ve explored some pretty cool ancient underwater ruins. But what if I told you a much more recently submerged city exists? Villa Epecuen was a tourist village established in the 1920’s along the shores of Lago Epecuen, a salt lake some 600 meters southwest of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

    Sometime during the 4th century, the Egyptian coastal city of Alexandria was hit with the double-whammy effect of a huge earthquake followed by a tsunami of epic proportions. An island called Antirhodos was sunk during the process, taking with it Cleopatra’s Palace and a former wonder of the ancient world: the Lighthouse of Alexandria, also known as the Pharos of Alexandria.

    In the Gulf of Cambay, off the western coast of India, the ruins of an ancient city sit 120 feet beneath the water’s surface. Oceanographers from India’s National Institute of Ocean Technology discovered the site by chance in 2001 while conducting a pollution survey. Among the debris recovered were pottery, construction materials, human bones and teeth, and sculptures.

    10: Stone Tools on the Seafloor
    There is so much potential underwater for great archaeological discoveries, from the North Pole to the South Pole! One of the coolest recent archaeological discoveries that took place underwater was when researchers discovered a collection of stone tools on the sea floor that date back 7000 years.

    9: Submerged Neolithic Settlement
    A new submerged Neolithic settlement has been discovered in Israel, and it is truly fascinating. Among the ruins of this lost coastal settlement, researchers discovered houses, graves, skeletons, and even a well.

    8: The Seven Pagodas of Mahabalipuram
    Mahablipuram is a UNESCO World Heritage site off the coast of India. Its famous all over the world for its impressive cave temples, ancient art, and fascinating architecture. Many of the structures here are from the 8th century AD, and the entire region is steeped in rich history.

    7: Cleopatra’s Underwater Palace
    Speaking of temple complexes, nothing is quite as cool as Queen Cleopatra's Palace being found off the coast of Alexandria in the north of Egypt. This city was originally founded way back in 332 BC by Alexander the Great during his conquest of Egypt.

    6: Vasa Shipwreck
    The Vasa shipwreck is one of the most phenomenal pieces of nautical heritage ever salvaged. It even has its own museum. It took about 6 years for the shipwreck to be found in the Baltic Sea, where she had been sleeping for 333 years.

    5: Doggerland
    Doggerland is a vast stretch of water between the eastern coast of Britain and the mainland of Europe. Looking at it now, all you can see is water. You would never guess that 10,000 years ago it was home to a massive civilization of humans.

    4: Ancient Incan Offerings
    Archaeologists have made an outstanding discovery at Lake Titicaca in Bolivia. This Lake, which shares a border with Bolivia and Peru, was a sacred site for the Inca civilization. It's believed that the Inca people practiced all kinds of different rituals at the lake.

    3: Underwater Treasure
    Let's take a look at some more sunken treasure. For centuries, people have suspected that the coastal waters of Albania, which have gone mostly unexplored in modern times, are a Virgin hotspot for treasure and sunken ships.

    2: Ancient Minoan Shipwreck
    The Minoans were an ancient civilization that existed between 3650 and 1400 BC. They flourished on the Greek island of Crete during the Bronze Age and were some of the most prolific traders in the region, along with Greece herself and ancient Egypt.

    1: The Zakynthos Ruins
    The Zakynthos Ruins are a bit of a disappointment. What researchers first believed was an underwater city lost to time near the Greek island of Zakynthos has turned out to be a geological phenomenon.

  • 16 Lost Underwater Treasure You Didnt Know Existed


    Many ships filled lost treasure, gold and jewelry were lost at sea. Some of this lost underwater treasure is still there today, so get your diving equipment and start the hunt.
    SUBSCRIBE for the latest videos:

    At number 16, we start with a shipwreck that didn’t even require scuba gear to reach. In 1533, The Portuguese ship Bom Jesus vanished off the Namibian coast without a trace. In 2008 the remains of the ship were found, buried in the sand, shipwrecked by a violent storm. Nicknamed “The Diamond Shipwreck” because, well, there’s a diamond mine close by, it is the oldest shipwreck ever discovered on the coast of Africa. Inside the Bom Jesus, 22 tons of copper were found, along with cannons, swords, elephant tusks and thousands of gold coins traced to King Joao [pronounced who-AH-oh] the 3rd.

    At 15, it’s the Hanneke Wrome. Discovered in south Finland near the island of Jussaro by archaeologists diving underwater, the ship had sunk in 1468 with all of its passengers and cargo. Almost 100 feet long, it is still well preserved and the woodwork still shows the craftsmanship of the Hanseatic builders. Along with other trading goods of the time, The Hanneke was also carrying 10,000 gold coins, which are now worth around $60 million.

    Next, we continue with The Belitung. Discovered off the coast of Indonesia in 1998, it was an arabian ship; the first to be discovered there actually. As a trading ship, it was filled with spice jars, funeral urns, silver boxes, bowls and crystals. It was carrying treasures such as jewels, rubies and sapphires, silver and gold cups, and flasks. Soon after its discovery, the wreck was purchased by the Singaporean Government and is now a tourist attraction.

    A really long time ago, between 1200 and 900 B.C., while the Babylon Empire was still a thing, a ship sank off the coast of Devon, England. It was discovered in 2010 by amateur archaeologists, along with over 300 artifacts like weapons, jewelry and copper and tin ingots. It’s not exactly filled with riches like the other ships on our list, but it’s a very important discovery nonetheless. It offers a glimpse into a very distant period in our history and proves that big trade networks existed during the Bronze Age between Europe and Britain.

    A hurricane brought down the S.S. Central American in 1857, at number 12 on our list, along with its cargo of 15 tons of gold. The shipwreck and the lost gold led to the “Panic of 1857”, the first worldwide economic crisis, that started in the US impacted by the loss of the ship.
    It was discovered in 1987 and 39 insurance companies made claims to the gold and other artifacts within. When the ship sank, the same insurance companies were forced to pay damages and were now trying to get their money back. After long battles in court, the team that discovered the gold was awarded 92 percent of the treasure. Different pieces of it went up for auction, with one record-breaking sale of one gold bar for $8 million.

    Next, we continue with a shipwreck of the coast of Greece. Discovered in the year 1900, it was the world's first major underwater archaeological expedition, with scientists from all over the world following it closely. The recovery process took over 70 years, with the last expedition being in 1976. The shipwreck contained the famous Antikythera mechanism, believed to be the world's oldest analog computer. Because of this famous artifact, many people tend to ignore the rest of the treasure, which includes coins and jewelry, glassware, pottery, statues and even couches and beds. The entire collection of artifacts is on display at the National Archaeological Museum in Greece.

    At number 10 we have The S.S. Republic. Discovered off the coast of Georgia, by Odyssey, a deep sea salvage and exploration company, the ship had been submerged for more than 200 years. Believed to have sunk during a hurricane in 1865, it went down with over 50,000 US silver and gold coins and nearly 14,000 other artifacts, that include thousands of glasses, bottles, and stoneware containers. Shortly after its discovery a lawsuit was filed laying claim to the wreck. A federal judge ruled in favor of Odyssey, and in 2004 the company was legally awarded ownership of the found wreckage.

    The San Jose was a Spanish galleon destroyed by the British around 300 years ago. Everyone onboard was killed and the ship sank near the coast of Colombia. The ship's cargo includes gems, jewelry, gold and silver, all estimated to be worth $1 billion.
    Under over 1000 feet of water, deep in the ports of Cartagena, its exact location is not disclosed by the Colombian government, to keep it safe from looters and treasure hunters.

    A couple of divers were exploring the harbor of Caesarea National Park in Israel when they found a gold coin. It was the first of many, as they would later discover, when the Israel Antiquities Authority returned with a whole team and recovered more than 2000 gold coins

  • Most Incredible Archaeological Discoveries Found Underwater


    #recentdiscoveries #archaeology #artifacts

    There are so many mysteries surrounding the underwater and sometimes, they find something unexpected. Here are some of the most incredible archaeological discoveries found underwater.

    Oldest Intact Shipwreck

    The oldest intact shipwreck has been discovered at the bottom of the Black Sea. The 23 meters vessel, thought to be ancient Greek, was found with its mast, rudder blade, and even coils of rope left intact. The lack of oxygen at the ship's depth is thought to have kept it in such good condition. The ship is believed to be a trading vessel similar to a merchant ship depicted on the Siren Vase held at the British Museum. Archaeologists say the vessel is more than 2400 years old, making it the world’s oldest intact shipwreck on record.

    Atlit Yam

    Atlit Yam is an ancient submerged Neolithic village off the coast of Atlit, Israel. It has been carbon-dated as to be between 8900 and 8300 years old. At the center of the settlement, seven megaliths weighing up to 600 kilograms are arranged in a stone semicircle. The site was discovered in 1984 and since then underwater excavations have unearthed houses, graves and wells. Scientists believe that Atlit-Yam was abandoned suddenly as a result of a tsunami hitting the region, probably caused by a volcanic eruption in the Mediterranean area.

    Pre-Viking Era Sword

    An 8-year-old girl found a 1,500 year old sword in a lake during the summer. She was swimming with her family in southern Sweden's Lake when she stumbled upon a long metal object. The sword is 34 inches long and exceptionally well-preserved, including a scabbard made of wood and leather. Experts estimate that the weapon dates back to the fifth or sixth centuries, before the Viking age. The local museum will continue to find more ancient treasures in the lake

    There’s a reason that stories of Atlantis and other lost civilisations have long captured our imaginations. The idea that an entire city could just vanish beneath the waves is a terrifying thought. While these lost underwater cities aren’t the mythical Atlantis, that’s exactly what happened to them, and their haunting remains have been documented by divers and archaeologists.
    Artifacts brought to the surface indicate the ancient city was once a massive trading center and bustling port city. More than 60 ancient shipwrecks have been found in the immediate area, along with hundreds of anchors, coins from across the sea, tablets inscribed in ancient Greek and Egyptian, and vast sculptures that were thought to have once adorned the city’s temples. Those temples have also remained eerily intact, complete with offerings and motives once given to the ancient Egyptian gods.
    Like many underwater cities, the conditions that the artifacts have been submerged in for centuries have preserved them incredibly well. What hasn’t been determined exactly is how the lost city ended up at the bottom of the sea, although it’s thought to have sunk after an earthquake. Built on the already precarious series of deltas reaching out into the sea, the best guess is that the already questionably stable sand and clay eventually gave way after a tremor.

    8. Bulgarian Atlantis
    A Bronze Age settlement that is believed to be older than the pyramids in Egypt has been discovered in Bulgaria. Underwater archaeologists found evidence of a human settlement near the mouth of the Ropotamo River on Bulgaria’s Southern Black Sea coast. They believe it could date back to the 5th millennium BC.

    7. Inca Offerings
    Lake Titicaca might sound funny but it was a very sacred place to the Inca. Lake Titicaca was an important area for rituals and offerings to their sun God. During an underwater survey of the lake located between Bolivia and Peru, archaeologists recovered an offering box made from volcanic stone, discovered lying on a reef 18 feet below the surface of the lake.

    6. Aboriginal Archaeological Site
    65,000 years ago, when people first arrived in Australia, sea levels were 262 feet (80 m) lower than they are today. This means that there was more dry land along the coast where people lived, and during the last ice age sea levels dropped to 426 feet (130 meters) lower than they are now.

    5. Underwater Quarry Discoveries
    Two British divers known for specializing in searching for lost belongings underwater recently uncovered old wheel pipework and a heavily corroded building 60 feet below the surface of a flooded quarry in England. But after more searching, they made a more shocking discovery.

    4. Ice Age Cave Fossils
    The Yucatán Peninsula is well known for its underground cave system known as cenotes. These were sacred places to the Maya and played a major role in their belief system. But in this case, it wasn’t artifacts that diving archaeologists found but preserved bones that were trapped for centuries underwater belonging to large Ice Age beasts.

    3. Invaluable Shipwreck
    Have you ever wondered what happens to priceless artifacts when they are discovered? Well, the fight for the world's most valuable shipwreck is getting very messy! Worth billions of dollars, it was missing for years and now that it’s been found, everyone wants a piece of the pie!!

    2. Roman Ship In Croatia
    Off the coast of the Croatian city of Pag, divers have discovered an ancient underwater vessel! When a group of firefighters were going for a dive, not far from the island of Pag, they came across the remains of an ancient ship and cargo that dated back to Roman antiquity.

    1. Underwater Moroccan City
    Along the Atlantic coast of Morocco, archaeologists have made the discovery of several shipwrecks off the coast of Safi. One might date back to between 2700 BC and 900 BC, during the Bronze Age. But the purpose of all of these underwater expeditions is not to find ships at all but to find the lost city of Tighalin.

  • Why Underwater Welding is so Dangerous & High Paying!


    While it may be a high paying job with some awesome perks, underwater welding is also one of the most dangerous jobs on the planet. Here are 9 things about underwater welding you didn’t know!

    SUBSCRIBE for the latest videos:
    Don't forget to CHECK OUT our latest upload:

    9. Special Training is Required
    With any good trade there is some special training involved, and wet welding pays no exception. In order to provide the service, one must be trained in both scuba diving and welding. Yet this is something you don’t need to go to a four-year college for—underwater, the more hands-on experience means the more valuable an employee is.

    8. Cool Tools of the Trade
    Underwater welding exposes the worker to the dangers of electricity as typically they use three hundred or four hundred amps of electric current to power their tools!

    7. Underwater Welders Can Help Protect the Environment
    Considering the high volume of offshore oil rigs with pipelines that travel through various depths of the ocean, these hazardous monstrosities are always in need of monitoring and repair.

    6. A Way to See the World
    The high-risk trade is a service needed all over the world, so the options are limitless with where you can live and travel to get a job done. As the location is adaptable, so is the flexibility, as when one gets tired of the task itself, they can easily become a teacher to those who want to follow the same career path. There is no age limit on who can hold this position, with the only concern being strength and the physical ability to get the job done.

    5. You Can’t Beat Their Office
    Due to the dangers and risks involved, wet welding is an absolute last resort, though oftentimes it must be done. These daring divers are responsible for repairing everything from pipelines, offshore drilling rigs, ships, dams, locks, sub-sea habitats, and nuclear power facilities, to name a few. The location is always changing, and the scenery isn't so bad either, as underwater welders are surrounded by their own personal in-office fish tank around the clock.

    4. There are Risks Involved
    The main risk of taking on a job in the underwater field is being in the way of an electric current. The risk decreases, as with anything, when you become more aware of your surroundings and environment. Working underwater always poses pressure-related risks as well. For example, decompression related illnesses involve the amount of pressure and gases you will breathe while getting the job done.

    3. It’s High Paying
    Essentially wet welding is the same as on land—metals are fused together to repair an immovable structure, but with electricity and water involved. Throw in the possibility of intense pressure threatening to crush the body, and one can see this trade is no fun task. As with any challenging and high-demand position, however, there is a high salary involved. We’re talking base pay that’s around one hundred dollars per hour! Of course, the rate depends on the task itself as well as the depth of the location.

    2. Bubbles can Save Lives or Cause Death
    Who thought bubbles could save someone’s life? They are extremely important in underwater welding as a large gaseous bubble typically forms around the welding arc and acts as the diver’s main protectant. Yet while they may help in the welding process, they can also yield grave danger. There are always more bubbles produced than necessary and being underwater creates an uncontrollable and unstable environment; therefore, the bubbles often fly up and block all visibility. Bubbles can be the cause of a completely failed mission as well as the final result of it all collapsing. Do you think you have what it takes?

    1. The Most Dangerous Job in the World?
    It’s no secret that underwater the odds are stacked against you. The pressure threatens to restrict and crush your body as giant swells of bubbles block your eyesight and make already dangerous tasks even more life-threatening. So, here are the risks in order of bad to worse…. There is always risk of a welder burning themselves, there is an even higher risk of electrocution, and when it comes to explosions, well, the constant emulsion of H2 and O2 mean that the possibility of an explosion could likely happen at any moment. How many die from this highly specialized mode of underwater construction? —11 a year, and the final cause is always a result of drowning. As there are only approximately 6,500 active underwater welders in the world, 11 per year is a high number; and it’s clear that the life expectancy of an underwater welder is nowhere the same as your typical white-collar office worker, rather, welder-divers die at a rate that is 40 times America’s national average.

  • Why In-Flight Maps Show Sunken Ships


    Hey, here’s a fun fact to tell your family around the dinner table: there are about 3 million shipwrecks in oceans all over the world! Ok, don’t lead with that one… But did you know why certain airlines show their location on the in-flight map! That seems a little odd, so why would they do it?

    First of all, we should always remember these events because they affected so many lives and likely changed the course of history! Plus, some ships not only have historical value but ecological importance too! If a vessel is under the water long enough to turn into a reef, the area can become rich with biodiversity, thus warranting protection.

    Compilation of videos of excavations of two shipwrecks.
    The wreck of the Le Marquis de Galliffet was a french plantation owner who fled Haiti during the slave revolt of the late 18 century. Although i have lots more info about him and the ships itinerary in the slave trade i have found no info about what happened to the ship. (Or the manifest) other than it sits under a cliff on the north coast of Hispaniola. We spent three years off and on excavating this ship with some fantastic artifacts recovered. There was no leg shackles or anything that proved the ship had been in the save trade. And quite the contrary. Beautiful ornate silver buckles. Gold and silver coins. Wine bottles. Maybe the ship was loaded with his personal belonging and fled the revolt and crashed against these rocks soon after?
    Second shipwreck in the video is what is now referred to as the Preciosa Site or Rawsons Wreck (named by the company who had the contract to excavate shipwrecks in this area) as i was the one who bought a coin from a local fisherman and investigated where he had found it leading us to Playa Preciosa and probably the oldest known treasure transport shipwreck in the western hemisphere. There is a known account of a ship carrying treasure in the year 1551 that wrecked on the north coast of Hispaniola. San Miguel that lost its rudder in a storm and drifted ashore and was mostly salvaged. But because identifying a shipwreck is very difficult without a ships bell or something similar it was never officially named. The Dominican government refers to it as the San Miguel. And it sure fits the era as the coins are from that era. The artifacts we recovered including a thousand coins Aztec and Mayan relics are now displayed in a museum in Santo Domingo.

  • Sunken Nazi warship could hold £250m treasures of the long-lost Amber Room’


    DIVERS have found the wreck of a sunken Nazi warship they believe might contain the legendary £250m Amber Room treasures.  The rusting remains of the German cruiser Karlsruhe have been discovered at the bottom of the sea off the coast of Poland.  Tomasz Stachura from the Baltictech diving group revealed: Looks like after months of searching, we finally came across the Karlsruhe steamer wreckage.  We've been searching for this ship for over a year. The shipwreck was found at the bottom of the Baltic Sea several dozen kilometers north of Ustka.  He revealed the vessel - which was sunk in 1945 - was discovered fairly intact at a depth of 88 meters (290ft).  And, enticingly, it contains multiple unopened crates with unknown contents.  Stachura said the discovery may even provide groundbreaking information on the disappearance of the legendary Amber Chamber.  The fate of the magnificent Amber Room has tantalised generations of treasure hunters and historians.  A gift to Russia’s Peter the Great from the King of Prussia in 1716, it was once considered an eighth wonder of the world.  Some 55 square metres (590 sq ft), it contained over six tonnes of amber resin and gold leaf,  worth an estimated £250m today.  In 1941 it was plundered from the Catherine Palace near St Petersburg by the Nazis and taken east to Königsberg Castle in what is now Kaliningrad and never seen again.     Despite dozens of Indiana Jones-style searches for the treasure across Eastern Europe, its exact location remains a mystery.  In 2017, the Sun Online reported how a trio of treasure hunter claimed they had tracked down the haul to a cave in the Hartenstein hills near Dresden.  Another report claimed the treasure may have been hidden in secret a secret bunker near the Polish town of Wegorzewo.  Now divers believe the Karlsruhe - not to be confused with a ship of the same name recently discovered off the coast of Norway - could help solve the mystery.   Stachura told Polish media: The German steamer Karlsruhe, which after Gustloff, Goyi and Steuben was another unit participating in Operation Hannibal.  It set off on her last journey from Pilawa on April 12, 1945 and was the last ship to leave Królewiec before the Russians took it.  She brought 1,083 refugees and 360 tons of cargo with her. She set off on her last journey under a strong escort.  Sunken April 13, 1945 in the morning. Only 113 people were saved.  We don't want to get excited, but if the Germans were to take the Amber Chamber across the Baltic Sea, then Karlsruhe Steamer was their last chance.  Tomasz Zwara from Baltictech added: Documentation shows that the Karlsruhe was leaving the port in a great hurry and with a large load.  All this put together stimulates the imagination.

    More About No Man's Sky:

    Inspired by the adventure and imagination that we love from classic science-fiction, No Man's Sky presents you with a galaxy to explore, filled with unique planets and lifeforms, and constant danger and action.

    In No Man's Sky, every star is the light of a distant sun, each orbited by planets filled with life, and you can go to any of them you choose. Fly smoothly from deep space to planetary surfaces, with no loading screens, and no limits. In this infinite procedurally generated universe, you'll discover places and creatures that no other players have seen before - and perhaps never will again.

    Play with all 10 major updates since launch: Foundation, Pathfinder, Atlas Rises, NEXT, The Abyss, Visions, the 2.0 BEYOND update, Synthesis, Living Ship and Exo Mech.

    An epic voyage to the center of a shared universe awaits, allowing you to explore, trade, fight and survive alone or with friends.

    At the center of the galaxy lies a irresistible pulse which draws you on a journey towards it to learn the true nature of the cosmos. But, facing hostile creatures and fierce pirates, you'll know that death comes at a cost, and survival will be down to the choices you make over how you upgrade your ship, your weapon and suit.

    Your voyage through No Man's Sky is up to you. Will you be a fighter, preying on the weak and taking their riches, or taking out pirates for their bounties? Power is yours if you upgrade your ship for speed and weaponry.

    Or a trader? Find rich resources on forgotten worlds and exploit them for the highest prices. Invest in more cargo space and you'll reap huge rewards.

    Or perhaps an explorer? Go beyond the known frontier and discover places and things that no one has ever seen before. Upgrade your engines to jump ever farther, and strengthen your suit for survival in toxic environments that would kill the unwary.

    The galaxy in No Man's Sky is a living, breathing place. Trade convoys travel between stars, factions vie for territory, pirates hunt the unwary, and the police are ever watching. Every other player lives in the same galaxy, and you can choose to share your discoveries with them on a map that spans known space. Perhaps you will see the results of their actions as well as your own...
