24 bronze statues were found underwater and were almost perfectly preserved. Archaeologists believe these may have been preserved for two reasons!
We’re talking about two dozen beautiful bronze statues that were found underwater in Tuscany.
What’s amazing about these statues is, not only that they were found, but that they were found very well preserved. So, archaeologists are actually crediting the 6,000 bronze, silver and gold coins that were covering these statues for preserving them.
I’m not a chemist, so I’m not entirely sure how this works, but apparently archaeologists are crediting these coins for the preservation of these statues!
