Has Google Earth Helped Discover The Lost City of Atlantis?

Has Google Earth Helped Discover The Lost City of Atlantis?

Bernie Bamford, a British aeronautical engineer, believes he may have the fabled lost city of Atlantis on the ocean floor.

Using Google Earth, the discovered grid has been found about 620 miles off west Africa in an area called the Madeira Abyssal Plane.

Atlantis Experts said that the unexplained grid is located at one of the possible sites of the legendary island, once described by ancient Greek philosopher Plato. According to Plato, the lost city sank beneath the ocean after the cities residents failed to conquer Athens around 9000 BC.

Dr Charles Orser, curator of historical archaeology at New York State University has said:

“The site is one of the most prominent places for the proposed location of Atlantis, as described by the ancient Greek philosopher Plato.”

Google however believe that the image is merely an artifact of the data collection process, not the city of Atlantis.

The underwater image can be found at co-ordinates: 31 15’15.53N 24 15’30.53W.
