Alexandria's Submerged Archaeology
A travel account of diving into Alexandria's underwater archaeolgy: "Thanks to the earthquake that rocked Alexandria in 1323 the Mediterranean has preserved to divers one of the seven wonders of the world -- Alexandria's Lighthouse, the remnants of which now lie nine metres on the sea bed". This is a moment-by-moment description by the writer of his experience of diving in Alexandria to see what remains under the sea. It is quite an intriguing insight.
