The earth’s oceans are a mysterious and baffling place to most people. Less than 10% of the world’s oceans have been fully explored. That being said, what has been found under the sea has proven to confuse and amaze people around the world. This list takes a look at some of the most interesting and amazing things that have been discovered on our ocean floors. Deep-sea divers explore just as much new territory as astronauts do, and this list showcases some of their incredible discoveries, and some forgotten pieces of history.
Lake Michigan Stonehenge
This one isn’t actually in an ocean, but it is certainly bizarre. This strange rock formation, found in Lake Michigan, seems to resemble Stonehenge very strongly. Even stranger, directly next to the formation is a boulder that appears to carry an ancient engraving of a mastodon. To make it even weirder, directly next to that is a pile of car and boat skeletons.
In 1980, this 10,000 ton ferry sank. It is now located at the bottom of Larnaca Bay, Cyprus.
The Lost City of Heracleion
This discovery was a great one for archaeologist Franck Goddio. He searched for 4 years before finding the ancient Egyptian city.
The story goes that a merchant vessel sank in the Mediterranean Sea over 3,000 years ago. Left behind were many beautiful pieces, such as this gold chalice.
