Having a great affection for fairy tales and fantasy fiction generally, the lost city of Atlantis has always fascinated me. I would love to see them find it in my lifetime. This is the most credible possibility I've seen so far:
"It is just so hard to understand that it can wipe out 60 miles inland, and that's pretty much what we're talking about," said Freund, a University of Hartford, Connecticut, professor who lead an international team searching for the true site of Atlantis.The thinking is it was wiped out by a huge tsunami and the remaining survivors fled inland to build mirror cities in its image. Wish I had toured those when I was in Spain back in the 90s.
To solve the age-old mystery, the team used a satellite photo of a suspected submerged city to find the site just north of Cadiz, Spain. There, buried in the vast marshlands of the Dona Ana Park, they believe that they pinpointed the ancient, multi-ringed dominion known as Atlantis.
