The Lost City Of Atlantis

The lost city of Atlantis has long been an engrossing mystery, and the subject of much public speculation, conjecture, and wonder. According to legend, Atlantis was populated by an advanced society that perished after the island subcontinent was submerged beneath the waters of the Atlantic Ocean somewhere past the Pillars of Hercules (assumed to be the Strait of Gibraltar). The name Atlantis is derived from the ancient Greek term for "island of Atlas."
