Researchers and ocean archeologists are revealing artifacts and treasures found in an underwater sunken city. Heracleion, an ancient Egyptian harbor city, is believed to have been built around the 8th century B.C and probably sank around A.D. 700 due to natural erosion and disasters.

The city served as the main port for trade with Greece. In the sunken wreckage, researchers found  64 ships, 16-foot-tall statues, 700 anchors and countless gold coins and smaller artifacts.
