I'm too white and Merican to visit Egypt safely.

/otherwise, I'd go in a heartbeat.

Just as long as there's not a cursed mummy there.

"The rise in sea level-already observed in antiquity-also contributed significantly to the submergence of the land."

wait wait wait wait
So they have had global warming for over 2000 years?
I was told that global warming was recent and caused by americans!!

Entire city sunk thanks to pyramid scheme.

texdent: Just as long as there's not a cursed mummy there.


I wouldn't worry too much. Mummies are already pretty slow, and once they're waterlogged you could probably escape from them at a casual walk. You definitely want to watch out for lacedons though.

It was the fault of those American made gas guzzling chariots the Halliburton had the Bush administration sell to the Egyptians... because they hate brown people.

150 feet down is impressive.   I would love to go, but am not qualified as a diver.

FTA: It's believed that gradual soil erosion eventually caused Heracleion to fall into the Mediterranean.

We can't possibly untie these 64 ships from the docks and save those countless gold coins, this gradual soil erosion is too fast.

Agree with this! Most likely a sea floor subsidence event related to an earthquake or volcanic eruption that caused it. They would have moved this stuff if they had time...

That's around when the "Egyptians" lost control.

I can only dive down to 100 feet or so, and am not comfortable going below 60 feet. But if I could, that would be very fun.

I think what they meant was the whole city didn't sink overnight.  Bits and pieces of it got swallowed up; spread over a larger amount of time.  Think multiple sinkholes caused by soil erosion, or California house eating mudslides.  The actual event of an individual building or area being swallowed up might take place over a short period of time with no warning, but there were years of erosion leading up to that which set the stage.  And to non-geologists/civil engineers, the ground looked perfectly safe up until it wasn't.  And there might be years between House #1 being swallowed and House #3 being taken.
