How many of you googled them?
I only answered the ones I could recognize, then fact checked in Google image search after I posted my choices.

10- Atlantis


I hope you are joking... I assumed Atlantis was one of the two that were not pictured (because it isn't real).

I have seen most of them so I only had to take a stab at two, #4 and #7.

I am still curious to see what #1 was supposed to be. I am guessing Carthage since it was not pictured.

None of these are real photographs, Atlantis is still a valid answer for one of them, maybe

Well yanno, there's always an exception, in the case of 7, because its been uninhabited for a loooong time, so looks the same today as it did then

How do you know it looks exactly the same?

Anyways. None of them are Atlantis. I don't see any helicopters, space ships, or crystal skyscrapers so they can't be Atlantis.

because as I said its been uninhabited, which means that no one was around to change anything

I never said that all these were real places
like for you when you look at this link, are all the pictures blank ?
www.google.co.uk...

Atlantis was supposedly a bronze age civilisation, all that other crap is non canon

I'm going to be very disappointed if you tried to pass off an illustration of Atlantis. Just saying.

1 - Minoan capital

(I didn't google any of them)


Fun quiz, by the way!

I got them all right except for Tyre and Eridu, though Londinium is, in my opinion, a bit dubious. Where’s Piccadilly Circus?

By the way, Borobudur was never a city. It is a free-standing Buddhist monument. No archaeological remains have been found nearby to suggest a neighbouring town or large community.
