Two priests were discovered in the temple of Taposiris Magna, west of Alexandria which led people to believe that this is the ancient resting place of Cleopatra herself. 

This discovery was made around 2019 when Zahi Hawass released a public statement in which he claimed that he may have uncovered Cleopatra’s tomb in the temple of Taposiris Magna, around 45 kilometers away from Alexandria.

However, this may have been mistranslated, as new studies confirm the fact that the Last Egyptian Queen's tomb is thought to be somewhere underwater in the Mediterranean

After the two mummies were discovered in Taposiris Magna, more people are starting to believe that Cleopatra’s remains might be somewhere inside of that temple.

The ocean has swallowed umpteen civilizations, just the past 10,000 years. We may never discover other lost towns and cities, such as to understand our past, or even explore those we know of, unless the secrets of the ocean are shared.


Ocean awareness, or literacy is not presently high on academic agendas. It is a shocking statistic that we know more about Outer Space, than we do our underwater kingdom. Televised documentary programmes have done a great deal to make life under the waves more popular, highlighting the marine litter problem that is of major concern to marine biologists. With plastic now seen in the remotest corners of the globe and deepest trenches of the ocean.
