In the depths of lake Lucerne in Switzerland, archeologists have discovered a sunken Bronze Age village. The underwater archeologists happened upon the village by accident. Divers from the Office for Urban Development of the City of Zurich were assisting with the installation of a pipeline when they found numerous wooden piles buried underneath a layer of mud. The discovery can rewrite Lucerne’s history, as it suggests that the region was settled much earlier than what was believed. Check All That’s Interesting’s piece on the discovery here.
