Atlantis’ location finally found?

More than 2000 years ago Plato wrote of a land “depicted a land of fabulous wealth, advanced civilisation and natural beauty” that was wiped from the face of the Earth in a single night, this was the fabled land of Atlantis. Since its destruction people have seemed to be more than a little interested in discovering the lost city.

There have been many speculations about where this lost city might be located, and based off of Plato’s writing scholars “have placed it off the coast of Spain, Cuba and the south west of England, as well as under the South China Sea.” Now it seems that some of the most convincing evidence of the lost city’s location has been found.

American researchers claim to have found convincing evidence that locates the site of the lost kingdom of Atlantis off the coast of Cyprus.

The team spent six days scanning the Mediterranean sea bed between Cyprus and Syria using sonar technology.

They believe they found evidence of massive, manmade structures beneath the ocean floor, including two straight, 2-km (1.25 mile) long walls on a hill.

They say their discoveries match accounts of the city written by Plato.

Robert Sarmast, in describing a section that is shapped like a flat-topped hill said,

“The hill, as a whole, basically looks like a walled, hillside territory and this hillside territory matches Plato’s description of the Acropolis hill with perfect precision,”

“Even the dimensions are exactly perfect, so if all these things are coincidental, I mean, we have the world’s greatest coincidence going on.”

With any luck, this does not turn out to be that coincidence, and we are able to learn more of this long lost civilization.
