Breaking news: Lost city. . .found? Lost city 'could rewrite history'
The remains of what has been described as a huge lost city may force historians and archaeologists to radically reconsider their view of ancient human history.

Marine scientists say archaeological remains discovered 36 metres (120 feet) underwater in the Gulf of Cambay off the western coast of India could be over 9,000 years old.

The vast city - which is five miles long and two miles wide - is believed to predate the oldest known remains in the subcontinent by more than 5,000 years.

Color me skeptical. The heavy use of Graham Hancock as an expert ought to send up a red flag the size of Cleveland. More probably, it's a far more recent site with bad C14 dates.

Update: Actually, it seems to be old news that is not terribly convincing. So, eh, file this one in the same drawer with the Bosnian pyramids.
