Atlantis

Atlantis n : according to Plato (c.428-c.348), Atlantis was believed to be a vast island continent, situated to the west of the Pillars of Hercules (the straits of Gibraltar).  In Plato's books Timaeus and Critias he wrote of a highly advanced civilisation (similar to that of Atland), which inhabited Atlantis.  Unfortunately within a single day and due to very violent storms and earthquakes both the island continent of Atlantis and its highly advanced inhabitants were destroyed over 9000 years earlier.  It is believed that the whole continent simply sank to the bottom of the sea.  The source of Plato's information was an Athenian scholar called Solon, who in turn had learnt of Atlantis from long lost priests and archives whilst visiting Egypt around 600 BC.

To this day no-one is really sure about the exact geographical location of Atlantis although over the years many theories have been put forward regarding this.  The research continues.
