Atlantis Lies Hidden under Ob Sea...?

Huge Novosibirsk Reservoir informally called the Ob Sea (Novosibirsk region) harbours lots of secrets, archeologists believe.
      In the 1950s a dam was built on the Ob River and Novosibirsk Reservoir flooded a large area with lots of buried historical values. Before the flooding Leningrad archeologists headed by Mikhail Gryaznov found about 70 archaeological monuments there, but had time to examine only 12 of them.
      This spring archeologists have also found numerous artifacts in the remains of an ancient settlement dated to the late Bronze Age (9th -8th centuries BC).
      During examination of a talus of the abrupt shore of Milovanovsky Island they found rare bronze pendants - ornaments of a Scythian soldiers belt that fell out from a burial site of the 5th-3rd centuries BC.
      Remains of an earlier unknown settlement of the Late Bronze Age have been found at the mouth of Khmelyovka River (9th-8th centuries BC), the report reads.
