Egyptologists Uncover Lost Golden City Buried under the Sands

In the News

When you think there is nothing else to find suddenly they find a lost city

I suppose with satellite and other technologies now being used its easier to locate these things than previously

We must have been posting this in chat at roughly the same time! I saw the article in the Metro.

I love history so I am drawn to these types of stories, can you imagine the thrill of being on that dig 🙂

The photos were fantastic

Yes B, i love this kind of thing too, i watch most documentaries on tv or neflix if available, the thrill of uncovering something thousands of years old must be the best

I was watching one documentary a few weeks ago about pompeii and how thieves had dug tunnels under an important archeological site to steal treasures

The chariot they found fortunately wasnt accessible to them , this was amazing

I saw that it was amazing. My husband is amateur archelogist and is starting a socially distance dig at the end of this month, he can't wait !

I think things started changing and more places were being uncovered once Sarah Parcak got the go ahead to start searching via satellite. Great, interesting programs. I imagine they are going to find more in the future.
