The Royal Quarter of Alexandria, where Cleopatra and Mark Antony played out their dramatic
life stories, is emerging from the depths of the ocean where it was submerged after a tidal wave and earthquakes more than 1,600 years ago.
Thanks to modern technology and a courageous underwater expedition led by explorer Franck Goddio, magnificent artifacts are being
recovered from the bottom of Alexandria’s East Harbor, treating us to an unprecedented view of a fascinating ancient civilization.
