Hunt for Atlantis - As Seen on the Discovery Channel
Before his death, a world-famous psychic pinpoints a tiny Caribbean island as the last, surviving remnant of the legendary continent of Atlantis. Years later, in the waters off the coast of the prophesied site, researchers discover what they believe to be a submerged roadway stretching for almost 2,000 feet. On the island itself, the come across strange, animal-shaped "effigy mounds" of undetermined origin, and from space, satellites reveal the remains of vast, apparently man-made structures in the shallow waters nearby.
Was there, as Plato and other ancients insisted, a now-vanished island society of advanced technologies and fabulous wealth-a place called Atlantis? Or, is this just another instance of the deep-seated human longing to believe in the exhilarating fantasy of a "golden age" that never was? Join a small group of scientists and amateur arch'ologists as they attempt to sort fact from fancy in an arduous quest to turn up the first physical evidence of the long-sought "lost continent." Marvel at ancient texts that describe in detail the amazing Atlantean culture, from the lives its citizens led to its cataclysmic destruction. It's a spectacular journey beneath the water and into the myth-shrouded past in search of clues to a mystery as old as civilization itself, as you set off on an extraordinary "Hunt for Atlantis."
