Greece : Found a “lost city”
Greece : Egyptian archaeologists excavated parts of Abydos, after excavations found a “lost city”. Archaeologists believe that it dates back to 5,316 BC. And it may have been part of one of the first capitals of one of Egypt’s earliest kingdoms. And one such discovery has been made in Greece.
An international group of researchers from Sweden has announced that they have found the ruins of a 2,500-year-old metropolis buried atop the Strongylovoni hill on the Great Thessalian Plains. An unknown city located near the village of Vlochos in central Greece, it is believed to have been a metropolis, according to the extent of the ruins found there.
Which at the present time covered with silt and sediment from the nearby river Anipes,” says Robin Rönnlund, PhD student in classical archeology and ancient history at the University of Gothenburg and leader of the fieldwork. May visited the site with a colleague last year for another project, and we immediately realized the huge potential. The thing is, no one has ever explored the hill before, and that in itself is a mystery.”
The presence of a major Greece city in an area thought to be a backwater of the ancient world may provide new findings on a turbulent period in Greek history, researchers say. 7,000-year-old lost city on the banks of the Nile comes some time after Egyptian archaeologists discovered it, also believed to be an important metropolis.
While none of this is visible from below ground at all, it does have a main square, walls, a tower in an area of 99 acres, and pottery, coins have also been found at the site, further indicating the city’s importance and size. Indicative it is a street grid.. To avoid disturbing the site, searchers are using ground-penetrating radar rather than digging. And this method has proven to be highly effective, as all the structures discovered so far have been identified by radar rather than dug up.
