. . .


Ucetia was previously known only by name for thousands of years, with many questioning its existence entirely.

The city was believed to have existed since before the Roman conquest of Great Britain in 43 AD.






Now a top team or archaeologists have uncovered the elusive metropolis near Uzes, in southern France.

Led by Philippe Cayn from the French National Institute for Preventive Archaeological Research (INRAP), the team uncovered a 4,000sqm city decorated with elaborate mosaics.

4. Just "thought" to have been lost?

Just "thought" to have been lost?

If I misplaced my glasses and couldn't locate them for 5,000 years (yeah, I know, but you get the point)

I would say they were definitely lost



I saw a post of a FOX News piece on FB that read:

Coast Guard confiscates cocaine worth $5 million in the Pacific


So naturally I commented, "I wonder what it is worth in the Atlantic. GRAMMAR: It is the difference between knowing your shit and knowing you're shit."
