Now, with a suite of high-tech hardware at its disposal, a company called Merlin Burrows believes it might have finally pinpointed the location where the city once stood....
Bruce Blackburn says his company used satellite data to comb an area that the group believed may have been the location of the thriving city. Their work began years ago and, according to Blackburn, the location was chosen based on Platos writings as well as other texts.
The spot, which is located near the coast in Spains Doñana National Park, was subsequently searched for clues. Merlin Burrows says it was then that the company found what it believes is remains of temples and towers. Dating of the material, which is thought to be early concrete, suggested it was between 10,000 and 12,000 years old, which would fit the rough timeline of when Atlantis is said to have existed.

The Eye of the Sahara seems to me as very possibly Atlantis.
What did they do for crops in the water-world that this article envisions?
I’ve been reading some books and speculative fiction that a ice free, more temperate Antarctica may have been Atlantis and some catastrophe happened approximately 12,000 years ago.
Beat me by a minute and change. ;)
Santorini? The west coast of southern Spain? So many possibilities.
Lots of fish ?
Just like Troy was thought to be mythical until it was unearthed, Atlantis is likely out there, buried. The trick is digging in the right place.
It’s usually been thought of as near Cadiz; a port city on an island in the river.
An earthquake more or less leveled it.

It lasts about 10 years in NJ and costs more.
“What did they do for crops in the water-world that this article envisions?”
They must have had some pretty advanced construction techniques - I can barely keep my roof from leaking.
Atlantis discovered Ping.
I think what happened 12000 years ago was the poles shifted. Antarctica could have been at the equator then. We don’t know... it would also help explain how people got to North America so early if they didn’t have to go across the entire Atlantic, but actually hopped from Africa to Antarctica to South America for instance.
Daily Mail also has an article
the thriving city? thriving underwater all this time? Who knew.
Atlantis was a myth created by the Atlantic civilization (the megalith builders) to protect their trade routes by misdirecting seekers into the open ocean from which few returned.
“Atlantis” was right if front of the explorers, but they had it on ‘good authority’ from the local peoples (who later became the Phoenicians) that the city was on an Island far out at sea.
