Atlantis was found, and archaeologists were greeted by a monstrous sight. Was it there before our eyes all along?
If we talk about the greatest mysteries and discoveries in the world, then it is likely that the Egyptian pyramids will be at the top of the fictional list, there will be a place for Stonehenge, and the legend of Atlantis may also be present. The incredible legend of Atlantis has also excited the imaginations of artists, directors, and writers, and thus the countless tales of the legend have continued into the past century. You can find countless works like this on Netflix too, if you keep your eyes open and don’t just keep an eye out for new ones. Without diving into the content, it can be found among other things Warlord of Atlantis 1978 and the documentary The Lost Capital of Atlantis, which claims something sensational.
Atlantis was discovered a long time ago.
The documentary is a work from 1976. It tells about Knossos, the largest city in Crete, and its excavations for 55 minutes. Knossos was discovered from scratch by Sir Arthur John Evans, who had heard legends about it and visited Crete to collect information from the local population, who passed these legends down from generation to generation. After thirty years on the job, an archaeologist has brought to the surface an amazing Bronze Age settlement, which suffered a series of terrible disasters during its heyday.
Between 1600 and 1400 BC, a huge volcano erupted on the island of Thera, its impact was also felt in Crete, and the decline of Minoan culture also began at that time. The eruption of Thera was devastating, and many scholars linked the mythical disasters of the Egyptian culture that flourished in parallel with the Minoan culture to it, which is also mentioned in the Bible.
The influence of Thera reached the shores of Africa.
The documentary, also available on Netflix, presents Knossos with unique footage and tells us a lot about its discovery, in addition to the legend that the sinking of the legendary and prosperous Atlantis can be linked to the explosion of Thera and the sinking of the Sazntorini archipelago, Plato also mentions this when he talks about Atlantis. Although there are debates about this among scholars, this could be a possible explanation.
Here are the amazing dimensions of Knossos:
To this day, we cannot solve the mystery of Hungarian Stonehenge with certainty
