Where precise details on the Plato story of Atlantis and the current Cretan theory don't match exactly, there is
also an explanation.

Plato, after all, picked up the story, second hand, from Solon who, in turn, got it from Egyptian priests, who had been handing it down verbally for a thousand years. Possible translations and misinterpretations of the legend help to explain away the few incongruities and even the incongruities are under investigation.

A small team of researchers sponsored by the government of Greece and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts is working steadily away and, as recently as December, a Professor Marinatos discovered some frescoes suggesting that the remains of a royal palace are not far off.

And so, the legend of Atlantis is moving from mystery to an Eastern Mediterranean fact.

Now the big remaining, unsolved mystery is: what ever happened to Colonel Fawcett?
