Underwater archaeologists have recovered more than 2,000 artifacts from the bottom of Lake Titicaca in Bolivia.

The project unearthed 31 gold fragments, mainly around the Isla del Sol, where legend holds that mythical founders of the Incan empire emerged from the lake’s waters.

Underwater excavations were carried out in other parts of the lake where objects from different dates were found.

“There are ceramics and urns from more than 500 to 800 years ago,” Delaere said.
