The team of scientists also found the remains of a long sea wall.
The staff of Merlin Burrows studied data from Landsat 5 and Landsat 8, as well as historical records about the location of Atlantis, such as the writings of Plato.
CEO of Merlin Burrows Bruce Blackburn said LiveSciense that the writings of Plato gave scientists the idea that Atlantis existed in Spain. The description of the philosopher, Atlantis was located on an island which was larger than Libya and Asia put together.
This description has led scientists to the Spanish coast near the Strait of Gibraltar. The researchers found large circles, which may have been the foundations of ancient towers and ruins that, according to the team, may be the temple of Poseidon.
The team of scientists also found the remains of a long sea wall, and signs of tsunami, which may be evidence of a catastrophic event, which destroyed the mythical state. In the analyses of the materials of the ruins have been identified estimated age of buildings – 10-12 thousand years.
However, other scientists reacted to the statement by the British colleagues are skeptical. According to them, this is not the first statement that Atlantis was situated the territory of Spain. According to experts, the findings are similar with the ancient government building, but no more.
