Now, we move onto other groundbreaking discoveries. The Giza Pyramids are no less than an architectural phenomenon and have disturbed historians for thousands of years.
A group of archeologists, however, found new evidence that once and for all solved the mystery.
Raiders Of The Lost Tomb
McCoy and the team investigated one of the graves in which the chiefs were buried. In this way, they could determine a clearer date for the original construction of the ancient town. McCoy said, "With the results described in our new paper, [it] can now be compared to other islands in the Pacific and societies around the world."
These findings are truly phenomenal contributions for further research into Atlantis. But who lived in this city, anyway?
Nan Madol may not be Atlantis, but then again, no confirmation is given that it is not. And even if it isn’t, this doesn’t change the incredible features that this team of archeologists has in uncovering something this special.
These discoveries encourage researchers to double their efforts to finally find the ruins of one of the most mysterious wonders of an ancient civilization– the Atlantis. Who knows, perhaps it's already been found, and we just don't know.
Finding The Truth
Over the years, the legends of ancient Egypt captured the imagination of millions, with many people dedicating their lives to revealing the truth of these mysterious pyramids.
Many of them have theorized how the magnificent structures were created, with the three main arguments about whether the blocks used to build them were lifted, rolled or dragged to their planned place. There was one group of people, however, who had the most convincing theories.
The Most Reliable Information?
Herodotus’s accounts of the construction of the pyramids are actually still considered to be some of the most reliable documents surrounding the subject, despite being written more than 1,600 years after they were built.
Although Egyptians have collected information long after the era, it is the most useful information we have ever known. Over time, however, many critics have become increasingly skeptical of his work, as they believe that it only gives one dimension to a multifaceted story.
