Summary In the fading days of the Pharaohs, the city of Heracleion was the gateway to Egypt and a port beyond compare. Despite its importance, Heracleion mysteriously disappeared from history as if wiped from the face of the Earth. In 2000 archaeologists discovered the city's remains 6 kilometres off the Egyptian coast and only 10 metres under water. This documentary follows a team of maritime archaeologists as they uncover glorious temples, statues, houses, and boats lying perfectly preserved beneath the sea. They provide a unique snapshot of Egyptian life over 2,000 years ago. (From the UK) (Documentary) G CC
