    Usually, not underwater.

    Books are occasionally found, but they would have to be in a dry environment. It's too bad that places like the library of Alexandria were burned way back in the day.

    However, we have sources like Nag Hammadi in upper Egypt. Possibly, there are other undiscovered treasures.
