Ancient Greece: Underwater Archaeologists Discover Monumental Structure From Site of Pre-biblical Battle

The remains of a huge building from ancient Greece has been discovered by underwater archaeologists working at a site of an epic battle that took place 2,500 years ago.

The monumental structure was found in the shallow waters off the coast of Salamis during excavation work that took place in June and July last year. The Greek Culture Ministry, which announced the discovery, said it dates to the time of the Battle of Salamis—a naval battle between Greek and Persian states that some historians say was a turning point for Western civilization.
