The ancient Roman city of Pompeii is a tragic story - destroyed in 79 AD by an eruption from Mount Vesuvius killing an estimated 16,000 people.
Now, scientists are saying they've found an "underwater Pompeii," although no one is sure what caused this city's demise.
The ruins are located off the coast of Delos, a Greek island. The settlement sank to the bottom of the Aegean Sea, and archaeologists have now found pottery remains and collapsed buildings in the water.
