3,000-year-old castle spotted underwater
BOFFINS have discovered the ruins of a 3,000-year old castle underwater – and believe they have finally found what they’ve been looking for.

Archaeologists who have been searching Lake Van – the second largest lake in Turkey – for decades have discovered what they believe is a lost city.
The castle is thought to be an Iron Age relic of the Urartu civilisation – also called the Kingdom of Van – which lived in the area from the 6th to the 9th century BC.
The remarkable discovery was made by archaeologists from the Van Yüzüncü Yıl University and a team of divers.
He told the Daily Sabah: “There was a rumour that there might be something under the water but most archaeologists and museum officials told us that we won’t find anything.”
The water levels of the lake had changed over the past few thousand years.
Incredible underwater cities
The idea that an entire city could just vanish beneath the waves is a terrifying thought – and while these lost underwater cities aren’t the mythical Atlantis, that’s exactly what happened to them.
“We now believe we have discovered a new area for archaeologists and historians to study.”
Atlantis is a fictional island first mentioned in the writings by ancient Greek philosopher Plato in 360 BC.
