Below is a NASA satellite photo on how the city looks today, nearly 12.000 years after its destruction by an earthquake and subsequent Tsunami.
It looks rather washed out doesn’t it? This structure is called the ‘Richat’ today and lies in MAURITANIA, a country in West Africa. In and around this area a vast number of artefacts are found. All dating back to at least 12.000 years before our time. Probably one of the richest archaeological site on earth. Which is not surprising, considering that according to Plato at least one million people must have lived here 12.000 years ago.
Dubai, United Arab Emirates., January 1, 2012 – (PressReleasePoint) – The ‘Eye of Africa’, also called Guelb er Richat, is a prominent circular structure in the Saharan desert in West Africa. Its name comes from its striking resemblance to an eye when seen from space. George S Alexander and Natalis Rosen claim that it is the most plausible site of Plato’s Atlantis. They have been involved in extensive research on the project since 2007. In 2008 they visited the site and subsequently produced a documentary which was released in 2011. A book on their findings is already in the pipeline.
The researchers worked closely with ancient writings from the famous philosopher Plato and believe they were able to find the fabled city with the help of clues left behind by Plato.
The dimension of the ‘Eye of Africa’ is apparently identical to the measurement of Atlantis given by Plato. The ringed layout of the Eye of Africa is also in line with Plato’s description of Atlantis, and so is the entire area surrounding the ‘Eye of Africa’.
