Explorations in the undersea world have unearthed remnants of several coastal cities; Archeological evidence of the now underwater city of Dwarka, India; Natural flint and fragments of bone discovered in Fløtjstrup Skov, Denmark.

Abstract: The undersea world, besides being a hub of bubbling marine biodiversity, cradles a unique realm of buried rivers, ridges, mountain ranges, volcanic craters, and even remnants of settlements. The fluctuating sea levels have swallowed several coastal cities world over, the evidences of which are coming to light gradually.
