Top Ten Archaeological Discoveries of All Time

The best archaeological discoveries are those which challenge our ideas of human history, reveal new secrets all together, and above all capture the imagination. Here we list 10 archaeological discoveries which do all that and more:PompeiiPossibly the most famous archaeological site of them all, in fact we'd be surprised if you managed to find a person who hadn't heard of Pompeii. After a devastating volcanic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD, Pompeii, an ancient Roman city, was buried under ash and pumice. The eruption destroyed the city and killed its inhabitants, a tragic story indeed but one which has left us with a vast archaeological site and a hoard of Roman treasure. Buried under ash equals no air and moisture so buildings, objects, and cadavers have remained well preserved for thousands of years. A great deal of our knowledge of everyday life in a Roman city is owed to the very existence of Pompeii, bitter sweet we're sure you'll agree.Tutankhamun's TombSurely the most popular Pharoah of them all, the great Tutankhamun owes his fame to Howard Carter and George Herbert's discovery of his tomb in 1922 which received worldwide coverage. KV62 (the Egyptian designation for the tomb) was uncovered in the Valley of the Kings still nearly intact. Although fairly small in size and seemingly intended for a private individual rather than royalty, the tomb contained over 2,000 pieces of valuable antiques and is ubiquitous with Tutakhamun's mask. Tutankhamun remains a worldwide symbol and sparks renewed interest in Ancient Egypt everyday, a great find contributing a great deal to archaeological awareness.>>>READ MORE
