This week Atlantis researcher and content creator Mat Chinn returns to show us some of his latest work.
Since the time of Plato and his dialogues Timaeus and Critias, scholars, authors and independent researchers have been consumed with finding the fabled lost civilisation of Atlantis.
Plato’s recount of the information given by Egyptian High Priests to his Greek countryman and statesman Solon has often provided the launchpad for research in this area, and the eerily accurate date that Plato provides (c. 9500 BC), and its temporal association with the Younger Dryas climatic upheaval has only added fuel to the fire in recent years.
Following clues from Plato’s account, beyond the Pillars Of Hercules, many locations have been proposed for its location. From The Azores and The Richat Structure, to Doggerland and Antarctica.
Can modern science and engineering aid us in our quest?
More recent technological developments in satellite photography, oceanography and bathymetry surveying may finally provide indisputable evidence for the existence of Atlantis, a claim that has led honest and hard working researchers to be labelled as kooks, cranks and fantasists for daring to approach this subject with an open, enquiring mind.
Well not here. We love a good mystery at The Amish Inquisition and can’t wait to hear how Mat’s research has evolved since we last spoke and if we are any nearer to nailing down this historical enigma.
