It has remained a tantalizing thriller for thousands of years, but now a U.S. Led studies crew believes it has located the legendary lost town of Atlantis.
Scientists claim to have pinpointed the exact region of the town under dust residences in southern Spain.
The team of archaeologists and geologists are convinced that Atlantis -swamped by a tsunami – is submerged simply north of Cadiz.
Professor Richard Freund of the University of Hartford, Connecticut, who led the international group, said: ‘This is the energy of tsunamis.
‘It is just so hard to remember the fact that it is able to wipe out 60 miles inland, and that’s pretty a lot what we are speaking approximately.’
The group used a satellite photo of a suspected submerged city to discover the web page then surveyed it with a mixture of deep floor radar, virtual mapping, and underwater technology.
Buried within the considerable marshlands of the Dona Ana Park they located an atypical series of ‘memorial towns,’ built in Atlantis’ photo with the aid of the refugees who fled the unfavorable tsunami.
Atlantis citizens who did not die built new towns inland claimed Freund.
The team’s findings had been unveiled the day gone by in Finding Atlantis, a new National Geographic Channel unique.
Freund said the ‘twist’ of finding the memorial cities makes him confident Atlantis changed into buried in the mud residences.
He stated: ‘We found something that no one else has ever seen before, which gives it a layer of credibility, specifically for archaeology, that makes plenty extra experience.’
Greek truth seeker Plato wrote approximately Atlantis a few 2,600 years in the past, describing it as ‘an island situated in front of the straits known as the Pillars of Hercules.’
These pillars were called the Straits of Gibraltar in bygone times.Using Plato’s specified account of Atlantis as a map, searches have focused at the Mediterranean and Atlantic as the first-rate feasible websites for the town.
Freund says tsunamis inside the location had been documented for hundreds of years with one in all the most important mentioned in November 1755 hitting Lisbon with a 10-story tidal wave.
The debate about whether or not Atlantis simply existed has lasted for lots of years. Plato’s ‘dialogues’ from around 360 B.C. Are the only regarded ancient resources of records approximately the long-lasting metropolis.
Plato said the island he called Atlantis ‘in a single day and night time… Disappeared into the depths of the sea.’
Experts plan similarly excavations on the website where they believe Atlantis is and at the mysterious ‘cities’ in vital Spain one hundred fifty miles away to more carefully take a look at geological formations and thus far artifacts.
