Atlantis (Greek: Ἀτλαντὶς νῆσος, "island of Atlas") is a legendary island first mentioned by Plato in Timaeus and Critias book. In her notes, Plato wrote that Atlantis lies "beyond the pillars of Hercules", and has a navy that conquered Western Europe and Africa 9,000 years before the time of Solon, or approximately 9500 years BC. After failing to attack Greece, Atlantis sank into the ocean "in just one day one night." Plato's story this reason archaeologists and scientists believe that there are advanced civilizations ever to master science and technology, rather dipuluhan approaching hundreds of centuries ago. then what to do with Japanese Tsunami?

The following narrative archaeologists
Japan has just stricken by earthquake rocked SR 9 and followed devastating tsunami that swept a number of areas in the City of Sakura's. However, not always associated with the tsunami disaster, at least for a team of researchers and seekers the location of the legendary city of Atlantis.

A team from the United States claimed to find the exact coordinates to the point where this lost city is located. This legendary metropolis allegedly drowned by the tsunami force hundreds of years ago in southern Spain. "This is the power of the tsunami," said head researcher Richard Freund team of quoted as saying.

"It's very difficult to understand that the tsunami may swept 60 miles inland," said Freund originating from the University of Hartford, Connecticut. He is a professor who leads an international team to find the exact location of Atlantis.

To solve this mystery for hundreds of years, the team used satellite images of the city drowned and guess its location in Cadiz, Spain. In the vast swamp called Dona Ana Park, the team believe they found a region of ancient Atlantis.

A team of archaeologists and geologists in 2009 and 2010 using a number of tools, ranging from underground radar, digital map, and underground technology to survey the site.

This discovery strengthens the case Freund images made refugees after the tsunami hit the city. Atlantis residents who survived may have entered the interior and build a new city. This team's findings will be discussed in a recent special issue of National Geographic, "Finding Atlantis."

Although it is difficult to ensure the Spanish as the 'graveyard' city of Atlantis, however, Freud believed the search node towns warning made him confident that the marsh mud on the south coast of Spain that was the site where the city is lost.

"We found something that had never seen before," he said. According to Freud, this is something that further strengthen the level of credibility, especially for archeology on the site. "So that becomes more reasonable."

The existence of a metropolis of Atlantis comes after the Greek philosopher Plato wrote it 2600 years ago. He described the city as 'an island in front of the straits called the Pillars of Hercules' as the Strait of Gibraltar is well known in antiquity. Using this calculation map Plato, Atlantis was during this search sites focus on the Mediterranean and Atlantic.

Freud adds a note of the tsunami has been documented for centuries. One of the biggest tidal wave struck Lisbon in November 1755.

Regardless where the exact location of this site, the most fundamental thing-whether it exists or not Atlantis was still so-long debate over the millennia. Dialogues of Plato in 360 BC became the only source of history about this city. Plato said the island called Atlantis, "In one day one night, disappeared in the depths of the sea."

The experts began digging at the site plan that Atlantis was suspected, Spanyo, l to study the geology and artifacts latest findings.
