I get that people have to make money, but there is difference between dedicating your life to something and getting paid and peddling pseudoscience/archaeology to make a quick buck selling books or getting clicks. But most discoveries are actually pretty dull to the general public. Let's be honest a youtube video on discovering the Egyptians knew how to make cheese (https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-45233347) isn't go to get as many views as one on ancient alien technology, despite there only being actual evidence for one of them.
Archaeology is bloody slow, there are plenty of new discoveries that challenge existing theories, but we tend not to get massive earth-shattering discoveries. They are just small things that move the needle a bit.
Here are a few from 2018 - https://www.history.com/news/discoveries-2018-archaeology-science-finds including an 4500 yr old Egyptian ramp technology - https://www.history.com/news/ancient-egypt-pyramid-ramp-discovery
Here is a great site to track new discoveries - https://www.sciencedaily.com/news/fossils_ruins/ancient_civilizations/
Honestly I think it is great that you are curious and interested the ancient world, it doesn't get as much coverage to the general public as I would like it too. The history of these places are utterly fascinating and there are a lot of genuine mysteries.
I would recommend that give something like Our Fake History a try, it is a fantastic listen and I think you would get a lot out of it. Hosted by a guy that is curious about history and different theories, who comes at things with an open mind. The Atlantis episode is great - https://ourfakehistory.com/index.php/season-2/episode-38-was-there-a-real-atlantis-part-i/
