Has the long lost city of Atlantis finally been found? Head researcher, Richard Freund says they have found some things that no one else has ever seen before and this alone gives the find a layer of credibility, especially for the archeology community.
A US-led research team used satellite photos, deep-ground radar, digital mapping and underwater technology to zero in on the region they believe to be the site where the city of Atlantis once stood.
Plato’s “dialogues” are the only known source of information on the city of Atlantis, in which he describes the city as “an island situated in front of the straights which are by you called the Pillars of Hercules”, otherwise known as the straights of Gibraltar.
It has been debated upon whether or not the city of Atlantis actually even existed because of the scarcity of available writings.
Meanwhile, further excavations have been planned for the newly found site, as well as various locations 150 miles away.
