There are some smaller, cube-like stones, about a foot square, occasionally found in portions of the intact wall and in places on the bottom.

This power came forth out of the Atlantic Ocean. 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.

One area of the wall remains fairly intact and is found in water about 6-feet deep.

Brushing the sandy bottom underneath the lowest tier of stones revealed more limestone blocks under the visible portion. How far down it extends is unknown.

Another area of the wall may also be intact, but it is different. This section is made from identical blocks, but they form a nearly square area about 20 feet wide.

Block piles on the island. At the highest two points on the island, on wide and flat areas about 30-feet high, there were huge piles of small square and rectangular blocks. These seemed to be ideal as building materials, but they were lying in jumbled masses as if a structure had been struck by massive waves. Other than a few small caves on the islands, we found nothing else indicative of human habitation.

Freedom of Information Act Request Filed—& Answered

After showing residents a satellite photo of the Joulter's wall, one resident suggested that we contact pilots to see if anyone had aerial photos of the formation from the 1940s or 50s. Thus far we have not found anyone who has such photos. But we also learned that the joint US Navy—British Navy facility on Andros known as AUTEC had supposedly taken aerial photographs of the underwater wall from helicopters. After making preliminary inquiries, we filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the US Navy, and then another request with AUTEC. AUTEC officials acted quickly and after a thorough and complete search of all their files and photographs, reported that no one affiliated with AUTEC of the Navy had taken any photos of Joulters. This is actually logical as AUTEC is a submarine testing facility and the entire area around Joulters is extremely shallow.

Joulter's Wall Speculations—Interviews

As part of our investigation of the wall, we spent several days at the University of Florida library and went through every issue of every scientific and popular journal published in or about the Bahamas. Nothing on the Joulter's wall was found. There were many references in these publications on the devastation hurricanes had created there, however, since the islands were uninhabited, virtually nothing else, except a scattered brief reference to a biological report or two was found. We also spoke to several Andros fishermen (who are over 80-years old) about that area and the wall. They were aware of the formation, but it was irrelevant to them as it was unrelated to making a living as fishermen. None of them knew its possible purpose or who built it. One resident simply said, “it’s always been there.” The initial impression is that it might have been a retaining wall of some sort, but the entire area is so shallow that the bringing in of large boats or even shallow draft barges to it is simply impossible.

During a radio interview that the present writer had during August 2007, a caller related, "it is well known that there were lots of stone piers built in the 1700s and 1800s [in the Bahamas] so that ships could escape taxation." He related that cargo was transferred from one ship to another at these piers. The idea is interesting except we have not found a single reference to such stone piers in any of the dozens of books and countless articles we have read on the region. Nor has a single Bahamas resident has ever related that idea to us. The biggest argument against the Joulter's wall being such a pier or a pirate formation is that only a rowboat could reach it. No ships in the 1600s-1800s could have possibly reached Joulters, nor is it likely they would do so as Joulters is extremely remote. Pirates did not build massive formations along shorelines for the simple reason that such structures would bring attention. In addition, this is a very massive formation, constructed from huge blocks that probably were not placed by hand. What is it? We don't know, but it remains an intriguing mystery and our efforts will continue in that region.

Project: Alta, Phase 3, Part 1 -October 1997

aerial survey

"We first approached Joulter Cay in the north. We were fortunate enough to document an unusual natural feature that even the first European explorers had noted: "white water". These areas were so white they almost looked like they were glowing! They were plumes of material coming from the ocean floor. Apparently a significant amount of strontium is present in this material, which is a calcium or carbon related phenomenon. One of the most interesting features here showed up in two of my photos: a large feature resembling a printed capital letter "E" that appears to be several hundred feet long (comparing it to other surface features) and covered with sand. It is east of Joulter Cay and under water. Another feature was photographed off of a nearby island (shaped like a rounded triangle) with two parallel lines curving in to shore." -Bill Donato

GLEANED FROM HORUS' POSTS ON OTHER THREADS:








"But the bottom line and proof in the pudding are the sunken ruins of Atlantis.  Only buildings in situ on

the seafloor will prove anything, and the numerous, purely geographical theories out there are severely

lacking in this department!



While my one of my favored prospects of the Grand Bahama Bank is not a rectangle, it was a plain 2000

stadia wide by 3000 stadia long nine thousand years before Solon's time, is shallowly sunken as

described by Plato, and most importantly, it bears sunken ruins -building foundations located by our

sonar last year and inspected by Greg Little's team in June.  So I think these dimensions can stand as

given in the Critias.




We've found ruins 100ft. deep near Bimini and are leveraging funds to return for a more detailed

examination."
