Lost Cities & Vanished Civilizations

Everyone knows of some great civilizations, such as Ancient Rome, Ancient Greece and Ancient Egypt. But there are so many interesting, less well-known civilizations still to learn about. Do you have an Ancient place you find facinating?

Published November 11, 2011

Real-life "castles in the sand" made by an ancient culture have been revealed in the Sahara, archaeologists say.

New satellite photographs show more than a hundred fortress settlements from a "lost" civilization in southwestern Libya.

The communities, which date to between about A.D. 1 and 500, belonged to an advanced but mysterious people called the Garamantes, who ruled from roughly the second century B.C. to the seventh century A.D.

Researchers uncovered the Garamantes' walled towns, villages, and farms after poring over modern satellite images—including high-resolution pictures used by the oil industry—as well as aerial photos taken during the 1950s and 1960s.

Thanks Mrs-down-to-earth! I went looking and found the article.
It's Official: Stonehenge Stones Were Moved 160 Miles...

Some of the volcanic bluestones in the inner ring of Stonehenge officially match an outcrop in Wales that's 160 miles (257 kilometers) from the world-famous site, geologists announced this week.

Some of the stones of Stonehenge have been traced to a location in southern Wales. This raises the question of why these anciet peoples would move rocks 10,000 miles - and how.

I wanted to comment on the undiscovered tribe that was recently found, but I can't find the discussion. Apparently the illegal drug trade is messing up their existance. I couldn't watch the news viseo...it was not available in my country.

Archaeology and lost cities has always been one of my passions that was put on the "back burner" because of working, raising children and life in general. I was exposed to many great archaeology sites as a child growing up in Italy. My Mother belonged to 2 different wives clubs that took trips on a regular basis to many sites all over Europe. My Mother had the idea it was just as educational as school and didn't have a problem pulling me out of school for a day to go on the tours with them. I think my first love was a sunken city in Fusaro Italy where I played as a small child. Looking down into the water and seeing the outline of buildings was the most facinating thing for me. Later we moved to Pozzuoli Italy, a seaport area rich in Greek and Italian history. I must have investigated every cave and archaeological site in the area!
This was my backyard for many years...I lived at the top of the hill on the right. This is the center of the old town. -The Serapium of the old city Puteoli.

LOL, this was my bigger back yard...the Flavium ampitheater is the 3rd largest in Italy.

I always wanted to be an archaeologist but my Dad talked me out of it. LOL, starvation conditions for little or no pay...So, I became a teacher. The kids are older now and it's time to take this passion off of the back burner and rekindle the love for history!
