The British Museum is to stage a major exhibition on two lost Egyptian cities Thonis-Heracleion and Canopus, which sunk more than 1,000 years ago.

The exhibition will display nearly 200 pieces of relics unearthed beneath the seabed of the coastal port of Alexandria in Egypt by archaeologists between 1966 and 2012. Collections from the Egyptian Museum are also on display telling the stories of the ancient civilization.
