City Beneath The Waves: Pavlopetri - Amazing discoveries.

Acambaro Figures: Although most of the scientific community has now agreed that these figures were part of an elaborate hoax, their discovery at first created a bit of a stir. Found in the ground of Acambaro Mexico were hundreds of little figures resembling both humans and dinosaurs which for a little while led some to believe that the ancients were better archeologists than previously thought.

Pavlopetri Greece. Whenever "lost cities" are discovered, Atlantis springs to mind. While there is no strong evidence that Atlantis existed outside of an allegorical tale by Plato, many cities have suffered the supposed fate of Atlantis - being swallowed by the sea.

The Baby Disposal:  One thing you will realize, that people, (at least in the past), were very fond of cannibalism, sacrifice and torture. As a case-in-point, not long ago, as several archeologists were searching through the sewers beneath a Roman-Byzantine bathhouse in Israel they came across something terrifying ... baby bones and lots of them! For some reason, someone in the bathhouse felt compelled to dispose of hundreds of babies in the sewer.

Troy Turkey: "Sing O Muse the anger of Achilles, son of Peleus ..." So begins the lliad of Homer, the foundational text of western literature. For all the importance placed in the Iliad, it was for a long time thought that Troy was as mythical as Atlantis. Then in 1871, a self-taught classicist Heinrich Schliemann, funded a dig at a mound in Hissarlik - there were in ancient time a city called Ilium (named for the Iliad) had stood - they found huge defensive walls of the type described by…

Although it has been known for years the the Aztecs hosted numerous bloody sacrificial festivals, in 2004, a grisly discovery was made outside of modern day Mexico City. Numerous decapitated and mutilated bodies of both humans and animals shed some light on just how horrific the rituals could get.

Akrotiri Santorini: The Minoan civilization of Crete is named for the mythical King Manos, builder of the labyrinth. There is scant written left from the Minoans, so we do not know what they called themselves. The entire civilization was largely forgotten until the turn of the turn of the 20th century. With the discovery of the great Palace of Knossos, the glories of the Minoans were rediscovered.

Atlantis: Okay so Plato is Atlantis at least the one he wrote about in his dialogues has never actually been found. Of course every once in a while archeologists turn up something that stimulates numerous rumors and ancient ruins have certainly been found resting at the bottom of the ocean, but as of today, the "naval power that stood before the Pillars of Hercules and sank to the bottom of the sea in a single day and night of misfortune" has yet to be found.
