Lost Greek city that may have inspired Atlantis myth gives up secrets


www.guardian.co.uk

"There is now no doubt that this is the oldest submerged town in the world," said Dr Jon Henderson, associate professor of underwater archaeology at the University of Nottingham. "It has remains dating from 2800 to 1200 BC, long before the glory days of classical Greece. There are older sunken sites in the world but none can be considered to be planned towns such as this, which is why it is unique."

Interesting story - although there are a couple submerged city tales from Asia (India and Japan), this appears to have gained certain attention because of the number of artifacts collected...some dating to the end of the stone age, claimed the surveyors.

To me, this underwater site does not seem likely to fit the account of an ancient advanced civilization such as Atlantis - it does however shed new light onto the idea of 'the deluge' and the existence of perhaps a entirely new yet ancient world civilization.

I highly doubt this is the oldest one. But it may be the oldest one they admit to finding!

Interesting how this evidence shows that sea levels have risen quite a bit since the era of this city.

Land masses never remain the same, they are in constant fluctuation and change rapidly.

To think we fear man-made climate change so much, but obviously mother nature can do far worse far more quickly. This city is an example of this fact.

That is, if any of this story is even true.

Thanks for the post. Yet another location within a time frame I have been working on for another thread in addition to this one.

Rather a long way from the Pillars of Hercules (Straits of Gibralta), don't you think, west of which Plato located Atlantis? It therefore would NOT have inspired him, not that he needed inspiration, as the myth predates his time. Such submerged sites are becoming a dime a dozen. It begins to get tiring every time someone finds one and thinks it is Atlantis.

It's likely Plato made up the story.

There were a large number of places that were destroyed in ways reminiscent to Atlantis.
Also, according to Plato, Atlantis didn't so much as sink as become a mud shoal.
