How about, the finding of troy by Schliemann (Sp?), and or the finding of the rock temple off the coast of japan, that might possibly be the lost city of Atlantis.

In terms of the Atlantis one, do you wish to throw your support behind it, or the "road" found in the norther Caribbeans?

Yonagumi Monument: Click

Found a few years ago by divers. The monument is at the center of a debate when it comes to it's origin, be it natural (geological formation) or artificial (Meaning it's a 10,000 feature).

The dating of the site put it at 10,000BC abouts, which was also the last time that, that area was on the surface, adding validity to the claims of their construction. At the same time the geologists who have studied the formations claim they are possibly formed by natural erosion, seismic activity caused by the volcanic region the monuments are located in, as well as a certain amount of faunal interference.

the idea is that the rock is actually much more jagged, but the covering polups, coral, etc. mask the true shape, making it appear much more... artificial in appearance.

The problem is that the geological explanations can be countered by the (I hate to say Archaeological, considering how little work has been done on the site, it being seen as being a hoax, and thus not looked at in a truly professional light IMO) anthropological explanations; but, then the geological explanations can be easily countered by the archaeological explanations as well! If you consider erosion, it works for both sides. The strong current would carry off any rock slabs that broke off from the original outcrop, but it would also mask any tool marks on the structure (which would have LONG faded after the 10,000 year history of the site). Any actual evidence of civilization would have long dissolved in the salt water, carried away by the currents, or buried under silt and fauna...

Too long ago for historical record... it all comes down to what you believe.

Hmmm... I do doubt that would be Atlantis... Most records speak of it lying somewhere in between Europe and America. Plato first mentioned it, saying it was an island "beyond the pillars of Herakles", which is antiquity-gibberish for the street of Gibraltar.

So yeah, the area of Japan is a bit out of the way, no?
