Tsunami uncovers archaeological remains

  • BoingBoing: Tsunami uncovered ancient artifacts As a result of the December 26 tsunami, archaeologists have discovered stone structures from the 7th century AD off the coast of India’s Tamil Nadu state. For three years, archaeologists have been conducting underwater expeditions to explore the remains of an ancient port city there. The latest finds, including the granite lion seen here, were partially uncovered after the tsunami caused the coastline to recede. The tsunami also desilted a mostly-obscured giant rock relief of an elephant on the nearby Mahabalipuram temple.

This just shows the amazing force the tsunami had to move earth and water which hadn’t been moved for centuries.
