Atlantis and Other Lost Civilization Mysteries

Scroll down to explore a learning path based on this topic.
Playlist Description

Is there any reason to believe the lost city of Atlantis may have been real? Since our earliest days, humanity has been a species of storytellers. In the modern day, inquisitive minds are still drawn to tales of the unexplained like moths to flame. Nowhere is this more apparent than in our enduring fascination with Earth’s lost civilizations—once-great nations consumed by the sea or crumbled into the desert, leaving behind only towering pillars, drawings in the sand, or a much-loved and debated myth.

Exciting new developments in technology have allowed us to dive deeper, to see further, and to begin to understand the mysteries of our lost civilizations better than ever before. However, the deeper into history we delve, the more we realize how much we still have to learn about these fascinating—and sometimes fictional—nations.
