Lost: Atlantis

The classic lost land, Atlantis has been positioned all over the place - from Ireland to Antarctica. Its vagueness has grown throughout the years, possibly out of all proportion to the actual proof for its reality, as it has developed into a criterion of the New Age progress, a key element of the unconventional history mythology.
So what is Atlantis? Is it the celebrated relic of an indisputably significant prehistoric culture? Is it a harmless narrative for “castle in the sky” novelists? Is it an idealistic self-satisfaction for romantics? Or fodder for hazardous prejudice? And if it actually did exist, where was it situated? We will return to discuss about it.
