I have long held a fascination about the plausibility of the ancient culture known as Atlantis. Whether or not Atlantis ever existed has been the subject of two thousand years of debate.
My first awareness of Atlantic the lost civilization occurred when I was nine years old in 1961. I attended a Saturday matinee at The Palace Theater in South Norwalk, Ct. where I saw a entrancing film, Atlantis, the Lost Continent. The famous producer/director George Pal created a spectacle adventure tale about the forces of evil that destroyed great Atlantis. The images of that movie, especially the end of Atlantis being claimed by the ocean stayed vividly in my mind for decades.
My interest in the lost continent was reawakened when I heard Donovan‘s song in 1969, “Atlantis” on his Barabajagl album.
National Geographic Special Finding Atlantis
The long lost city of Atlantis is now said to be found in southern Spain. National Geographic claims that the city was destroyed in a tsunami thousands of years ago and resides now in the flat mud grounds of Donana. The researchers studied a site just above Cadiz where a photo of satellite showed a suspected submerged city which was surveyed with radar technology, satellite map and digital imagery during the period of 2009 and 2010.
