What is Atlantis?
The lost city of Atlantis is an issue that historians have debated for many years. Mentions of its existence can be traced as far back as the time of the philosopher Plato and his text Timaeus. According to his writings, Atlantis was a ringed city (or possibly, continent), well known for its bravery, that was destroyed and buried by a tsunami. In today’s world, most people pass Atlantis off as just another myth…
…But Maybe They’re Wrong
Professor Richard Freund of the University of Hartford and his research team have recently made a discovery that may alter the picture dramatically. Last night’s National Geographic show presented their latest findings. Utilizing radar technology, digital imaging and mapping as well as satellites, the team located the traces of a sunken city off the coast of Northern Spain. The credibility of the discovery is strengthened by the unearthing of several “memorial cities,” believed to be built by Atlantis survivors following the destruction of their home.
While the findings leave room for much speculation, the researchers’ discovery is certainly fascinating. Perhaps further studies will uncover more information and add some color to the history of Northern Spain.
