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.

Renovation of Benjamin Franklin’s home reveals 1200 human bones in his basement

Everyone has secrets, whether they be minor or major.  While some people might discuss their secrets with someone they trust, others will take their secrets to the grave with them. One of those people who took their secret to the grave was Benjamin Franklin.

While alive, Franklin had lived in London’s Craven Street for almost two decades while he was an ambassador for the American colonies.

The little four-story townhouse was renovated and restored in 1998 after the Friends of Benjamin Franklin House had decided to turn the run-down home into a museum.  During that renovation and restoration, the people working on the home discovered something rather disturbing.
