Shicheng, The Lost Underwater City In China
“In the Chinese province Zhejiang, forty feet underwater, was rediscovered Shicheng city known as the city of lions, a place that once was a cultural, economic and political center of the province. It was named the Lion City because Five Lion Mountain loomed large behind it. In 1959 the authorities decided to build an artificial lake and hydroelectric station, and the city, thousands of years old, was covered in water.”
Tintern Abbey, Wales
“The Cistercian abbey of Tintern is one of the greatest monastic ruins of Wales. It was only the second Cistercian foundation in Britain, and the first in Wales, and was founded on 9 May 1131 by Walter de Clare, lord of Chepstow. It soon prospered, thanks to endowments of land in Gwent and Gloucestershire, and buildings were added and updated in every century until its dissolution in 1536. However, it was never very large and important, and its history was relatively uneventful. Its position well away from the Welsh heartland meant that, unlike Margam, Neath and Llanthony, it suffered little in the periodic Welsh uprisings of the medieval period.”
