Switzerland proposes underwater UNESCO sites
The Swiss Federal Office of Culture has unveiled its next dossier bound for a UNESCO heritage panel: the underwater ruins of lakeside communities from the Neolithic and the Bronze ages. The artifacts are known as 'pile dwellings.' Houses in these communities were built on 'piles,' or stilts, above the water. They can be found under a number of lakes in countries surrounding the Alps.
