Atlantis Uncovered

Remarkable new scientific evidence explains the disappearance of one of the world’s most successful ancient civilisations.

For decades scientists have tried to understand why the Minoan people vanished from the pages of history 3,600 years ago. They were masters of the Mediterranean, developing a trading empire, a written language, sophisticated art and culture and even paved roads. Some believe their strange disappearance was the origin of Plato’s story of Atlantis, the city drowned by the sea.

Now at last, using the latest scientific discoveries, we can tell an extraordinary detective story of how a single volcanic eruption triggered a chain of events, including dramatic climate change, that overthrew the Minoans. Their fate is a powerful warning to us in the 21st century.

The recent, massive eruption of an undersea volcano in the Pacific causing a SUPER TSUNAMI which engulfed Tonga and travelled half way round the world has focused new attention on the civilization-ending power of a 1-2 punch of epic natural forces.

Scientific experts will explore clues in locations including Alaska, Egypt, Ireland and around the Mediterranean.

Our team will include historians specialising in civilisational collapse, such as Dr Luke Kemp, aka Dr Doom.

Compelling CGI will recreate the glories of the Minoan civilisation, and visualise the terrifying effects of a volcanic eruption and tsunami.
