Of all the ancient civilizations, the one which fascinates me is Crete.

It was clearly a real power in the early years of Mediterranean civilizations yet not a lot is known about it.

I have always suspected that it holds many interesting secrets.

Oh! Geographically “underwater”, not financially. I thought this was yet another report on The Detroit Bankruptcy.

Any mention of the lost cities supposedly found just off the west coast of South America? The newspapers in March and April 1966 had stores of them on the front page.

Did you ever read the science fiction story that ends (SPOILER ALERT)

with the people of Atlantis witnessing the rise of Manhattan?

Great story and great ending. :)

That kind of rings a bell; there were stories about those purported finds in the adventure mags of the time, like Argosy, True, and Saga, if memory serves — not that those were the most reliable sources of course. ;’)

> Ruins of roads and buildings found off Bimini Island in the 1960’s by the photographed and published expeditions of Dr. Mansan Valentine. Steven Forsberg, co-founder of the Lahaina Times newspaper dove into these ruins in 1982 to witness them first hand... In the Pacific, ruins of an ancient city were explored on the ocean floor off Ponape Island. Another was found underwater 30 miles off Easter Island. A ruined road on Karotonga Island goes into the ocean, runs underwater for many miles, and comes out of the ocean on another island in a straight line! Professor Menzies, from Duke University, photographed a ruined civilization on the sea bottom between Peru and Tahiti with unknown hieroglyphics on a column. Monolithic ruins from a lost civilization were found on a half dozen South Pacific Islands, which are said to be Lemurian mountain peaks above water.

**which are said to be Lemurian mountain peaks above water.**

They found MU! I know there was something to all those cheap books written by Churchward printed back in the 1960s!;-D

I like it myself but a bit out of my price range for this lifetime.

My corp’s HQ is in Scotland so a bit of a commute and I don’t think a first line IT break/fix guy could rate a company move to such digs.

Yeah, the lost motherland of Mu, obviously their main industry was dairy farming.

One thing which intrigues me about Crete is that it is mentioned a lot in Greek history. Such as in the Iliad and the Myth of Theseus and the Minotaur.

It was a major power at one time but that era, at least in Crete, seems to be lost in the shadows of history.
