More on the lost city of the Caribbean, it it Atlantis or is it a hoax? Or is it a new real estate opportunity? 😉

Lost city somewhere in the Caribbean

The legend of Atlantis, a city of astonishing wealth, knowledge and power that sank beneath the ocean waves, has fascinated millions.

Time and time again hopes have been raised that the lost city has been found – only for those hopes to be dashed against the evidence (or lack thereof).

Its location – or at least the source of the legend – remained a tantalising mystery.

In 1997, Russian scientists claimed to have found Atlantis 100 miles off Land's End.

In 2000 a ruined town was found under 300ft of water off the north coast of Turkey in the Black Sea.

The area is thought to have been swamped by a great flood around 5000BC, possibly the floods referred to in the Old Testament.
