An important archaeological discovery was announced in Greece that was found underwater in Kiladha Bay on the Peloponnese Peninsula south of Athens. Resting there for millennia, the remnants of an ancient Greek village of the 3rd millennium B.C. were found by divers just under the surface of the bay that forms part of the Argolic Gulf of southern Greece. A team of Greek and Swiss archaeologists have discovered what appears to be a significant coastal settlement now covered by the Mediterranean Sea and within sight of the nearby Lambayanna beach.

Of the discovery, Professor Julien Beck of the University of Geneva said, "The importance of our discovery is partly due to the large size of the establishment: at least 1.2 hectares (Ed. Note: 2.9 acres) were preserved,” He added that the discovery is important also because of the quantity and quality of the artifacts that were collected there. The Bronze Age sunken village dates back to before 2,000 years B.C. The team of underwater archaeologists discovered stone defensive structures that are of a “massive nature, unknown in Greece until now,” said Beck.  The research was conducted in 2014 with archaeologists from the University of Geneva, under the auspices of the Swiss School of Archaeology in Greece and in collaboration with the Greek Ministry of Culture. The team is seeking to find evidence for the oldest village in Europe yet known to science, dating back at least 8,000 years ago.
