Beautiful 2,200-year-old mosaics discovered in ancient Greek city

In the ancient Greek City, Zeugma, which is located in today’s Turkey, unbelievable mosaics were uncovered,  dating back to the 2nd century BC, but incredibly well-preserved and look as beautiful and stunning as the first day. 

The site came to the attention of the international archaeological community when it was threatened by flooding, due to the construction of a nearby dam in southern Turkey in 2000.

“There are still unexcavated areas. There are rock-carved houses here. We have reached one of these houses and the house includes six spaces. We have also unearthed three new mosaics in this year’s excavations,” he said.
