Easter Island Heads on Easter Island South Pacific.
 What many who see them do not realise, is that the Heads are Fragments remaining after the original sculptures were buried by the descendents of the people who made them

Archaeologists discovered what was buried beneath the ground
So have you ever stood still and wondered what is beneath your feet? Wondered what you are walking over

NEWGRANGE Burial Mound and Temple Southern Ireland 

Newgrange Burial Mound was constructed in 3200 BC and is 5000 years old, older than Stonehenge. It was forgotten and thought to be a small hill until 1699 when the entrance and tunnels were rediscovered and opened up. There are similar hills and mounds around Newgrange and on the Salisbury plains near Stonehenge. The Neolithic people didn't leave a map or a list

Closer to us in time and geographically is London. 2000 years of settlement, sewers, power, water, covered over rivers, layers of the underground. And this is just the stuff we know about. When they dug the first Thames pedestrian tunnel in 1820's workers became ill coming into contact with bacteria trapped
in the mud under the Thames for thousands of years
Thames Tunnel is a underground tunnel now
