Lost city found in Turkey: It is older than Troy
National Turk ^ | Monday, September 26, 2011 | unattributed

Posted on 09/27/2011 6:16:07 PM PDT by SunkenCiv

A group of scientists and archeologists from Canakkale (Dardanelles) University have found traces of a lost city, older than famed Troy, now buried under the waters of Dardanelles strait.

Led by associate professor Rustem Aslan, the archeology team made a surface survey in the vicinity of Erenkoy, Canakkale on the shore. The team has found ceramics and pottery, what led them to ponder a mound could be nearby. A research on the found pottery showed that the items belonged to an 7000 years old ancient city. The team has intensified the research and discovered first signs of the lost city under the waters of Dardanalles Strait.

The lost city lies in the sea floor in the Aegean entrance of the strait on the shores of Europen side. The professor told "the pottery indicates the city is from around 5000 BC. We believe the civilizations on the shores of Dardanelles and Bosphorus straits had been buried under water. This latest mound discovered is also 90% under water and gives significant hints on the sea levels then."

In other words, sea level rise has been going on for thousands of years and is not a new postindustrial phenomenon.

The sea level has risen about 300 feet since the last ice age ended. The really ancient civilizations are on the continental shelves which ring the continents. Look there my friend and you will be amazed. I would look at the old river mouths for starters.

7000 years old ancient city

Faked, like the moon landing. God's earth will celebrate its 6,245th birthday come October.

Well I looked on Wikimapia and I didn’t see a damn thing but the Canakkale strait. Erenkoy strait and Bosphorus strait wasn’t anywhere around. Can’t they keep these maps up to date. Sheesh!

Erenkoy strait and Bosphorus strait wasn’t anywhere around.

Should read:
Bosphorus strait and Erenkoy and wasn’t anywhere around.

"...and gives significant hints on the sea levels then."

Uh, professor, we already know what sea levels were then with a fair degree of accuracy. Sea levels have been rising for the last 11,000 years at a fairly constant rate and have totaled about 800 feet over that time period.

You’d look that way too by the time you had “launched” a thousand “ships”.

That'd be "average sea level". More recently they've found that gravitational anomalies create mountains and valleys out there in the Ocean that we have been overlooking in our computations of the effect on shorelines.

I've been trying to think through what these things are like and what they are doing ~ first off they'd be detectible only from space, and at the same time they could cause some sea levels on some shores to drop.

They probably explain the biological anomaly discovered in Alaska a couple of decades back. The guy found the terminal forests were at a lower elevation than the immediate post Ice Age bogs along the rain forest area South of Juneau. The theory had been that the bogs came first, then the trees, but there the trees came first then the bogs.

The only way to explain it was for the sea level in that region to be dropping while it was rising further up the coast North of Juneau. However, there were no geological signs of subsidance.

The guys who have the job of understanding this currently put little store in sea level data having much relevance to anything ~ particularly no the predictions of cities being flooded suddenly while their citizens stand there dumbfounded and drown.

A very smart man in the crowd took one look at that and said, “That looks like a Trojan horse to me.” Nobody knew what the hell he was talking about, and the rest is history.

The Canakkale Strait is another name for the Dardanelles.

I wondered if this was really just attributable to erosion -- 5000 BC? Hmm...
