All of these legendary cities were said to lie at the end of the known world, at the western end of the Mediterranean in what is now southwestern Spain. They were all renowned for their mineral wealth: gold, silver and copper. And all of them disappeared suddenly. Were they all one and the same, the lost city of Atlantis?
Or were they all just legends? This question has been debated endlessly over centuries. Now science in entering into play. Recently a group of archaeologists from the University of Hartford set out to resolve the mystery with up-to-date high-tech methods, and the National Geographic went along to produce this 46-minute documentary.
The study counted on both on-land and underwater archaeological teams, using electrical current techniques (ERT) capable of reading the subsurface down to 12 meters, and side-scan underwater sonar, as well as satellite and low-level aerial photos made possible by kites and balloons. These advanced research processes yield a fascinating story. Did they discover the secrets of Atlantis? For the answer to that question you have watch the video.
