There is a lot of noise coming from the underwater archaeologists as of late and for good reason. The world’s oldest underwater submerged town, Pavlopetri, is about to be “rediscovered” and new things uncovered. The site was first mapped in 1968 and no archaeologist had been given permission to view it since. A Dr. Henderson from the University of Nottingham has that privilege now. He hopes to accurately map the town and determine the dates of occupation and development of the town. Dr. Flemming, who located the site originally in 1967, will be on the team as well.
Now… on to some happy gorilla videos. It is Year of the Gorilla as I have mentioned before, so we get some ape madness here on Potspoon!
Filmmaker Steve Taylor is working with YoG2009.org to make a documentary called Africa’s Green Heart. A Personal Journey Through Africa’s Great Equatorial Rainforests.

Here is a clip of some of his footage.
