Atlantis - The Lost Continent

Today on Far Future Horizons we present a fascinating documentary which offers a historical overview of the Western World’s enduring love affair with the legend of Atlantis.

Why has the legend of a city under the sea so captivated the imaginations of the generations of people who have searched for Atlantis? Did Atlantis really exist and if so where?

The City of Atlantis as described by Plato

Atlantis has been linked to Bimini the Canary Islands Santorini and Troy among other places. What kind of people were the Atlantians? According to Atlantis scholars the Atlantians developed a technologically advanced civilization which has yet to be surpassed. 

But, such climes are very dubious and pseudo-scientific.

Many people claim to have found the location of the city which is said to have sunk to the bottom of the ocean in a day and a night. Perhaps it is currently under excavation.
