Every other Wednesday we present a new video, so join us to see the truth laid bare...

A disaster is looming. A fabulous city, rich in culture, and technological advances, is about to be destroyed. Buildings, people, an entire civilisation, swept away by an overwhelming natural disaster. The legend has entranced scientists and scholars for centuries.

In this episode Naked Science goes in search of the most enduring myth of all - The City of Atlantis - lost beneath the waves to a massive natural cataclysm some 11,000 years ago. We know very little of Atlantis, in fact were it not for the writings of the Greek philosopher Plato we might not have encountered it at all. Plato, recounting a story he heard as a child, described a huge metropolis, rich in fine art, architecture and culture. The city was destroyed in the space of a day and a night, sunk beneath the waves for eternity by a massive natural cataclysm. For thousands of years the tale remained an obscure yet tantalising fable until an American by the name of Ignatius Donnelly reignited the idea, bringing it to worldwide attention and sending archaeologists and trophy hunters alike across the globe in its wake.

the destruction of the library of alexandria is probably one of the worst crimes to humanity ever committed, i bet anything details about malta or "atlantis" were there

So your going to search in four different places, NONE of which are situated where plato said atlantis was. Rubbish.

There may have been more than one Atlantis before the younger dryas event which was probably a comet or Meteorit.

An hour-long investigation and the conclusion is, we don't know.

Some believe Atlantis sunk into the ocean. It's an ocean of life, out there in the universe. Wouldn't be surprised.

I just LOVE how you can put 'Atlantis' and 'science' in the same sentence, then show this drivel.

I think it is the Eye of the Sahara. Plato said, "But afterwards there occurred violent earthquakes and floods; and in a single day and night of misfortune all your warlike men in a body sank into the earth, and the island of Atlantis in like manner disappeared in the depths of the sea. For which reason the sea in those parts is impassable and impenetrable, because there is a shoal of mud in the way; and this was caused by the subsidence of the island". So maybe it isn't in the actual sea anymore? Or it has rose out now and dried out and is now a desert? I am by no means a scientist or scholar but i watched an interesting YouTube video by Bright Insight that led me to watch the "Visiting Atlantis" documentary, both which believe the Richat structure in Mauritania could possibly be Atlantis which makes a lot of sense when you actually consider it. It would make sense that if hit by a tsunami, the water would wash back out and after 12, 000 years... you knows? it could BE a desert now. Someone should study further into this and actually check into the Richat structure and do a real dig. Watch Bright Insight's videos on the subject.... it is very interesting.

38:10 'They hope that next time they will bring back conclusive proof'. I hope that next time I win the lottery, fact is I think I have more chance than they do.

Seems they were wiped out by the same event that wiped the other temples covering the earth.
There is an answer- just no one wants this one.

It was an Egyptian story and it was said to be destroyed 13000 years ago so it doesn't make sense to look in places that are only 5000 years old

From what I've seen, I think if you find he statue of the Sea God you'll have found the island of Atlantis.

some say the eye of the sahara was the place for Atlantis

They apparently think that after 9000 plus years that a city that was buried should be visible to the naked eye. It didn't even take 2000 years to bury most of Egypt.

Plato mentions in his writings the "straits of Gibraltar" Thats near Spain.
