If there is an archaeological discovery that would change the world on its mind, it would be the discovery of the lost city of Atlantis. Many have searched for the remains of the mythical venue, but nobody has come close to actually finding it, and scientists who claim to have found it in the past have all been finally proven wrong.
Now, with a series of high-tech Hardware available, a company called Merlin Burrows believes that it may have finally taken place where the city once stood. Needless to say, you should take everything you read from this point with a large salt grain.
A thousand years ago, Platon wrote about civilization and noted that its incredible technological advances and wealth were not equal, and that the city was finally destroyed by a terrible event. Nobody really knows if Platon meant for his writings to be taken as evidence of the existence of the city or if he just sew a yarn to be a warning against the dangers of excess, but it has not stopped many people from searching for Atlantis.
Merlin Burrows, who calls a land and sea search company specializing in finding "forgotten or hidden" things, is ready to release a documentary about what it says can finally prove that Atlantis was real. Speech by Live Science CEO Bruce Blackburn, Merlin Burrows, said that his company used satellite data to combine an area that the group believed could have been the location of the thriving city. Their work started many years ago, and according to Blackburn, the place was chosen from Plato's writings and other texts.
The site, located near the coast of Spain's Doñana National Park, was later sought for clues. Merlin Burrows says that it was then that the company found what it means are objects of temples and towers. Dating of the material, which is believed to be early concrete, suggested that it was between 1
This is hardly the first time a group has claimed the discovery of Atlantis, and it is not even the first time the researchers suggested that the remains may be in this particular place in Spain. But Merlin Burrows says that the forthcoming documentary Atlantica will ask questions to rest.
With so many fake "discoveries" previously, the archaeological community is pretty much quite worn out on the Atlantis discoveries. If this is the evidence we've all been waiting for, it will be an amazing achievement, but for now we have to keep our fingers crossed.
