For discoveries in that region we had to wait until 1981, when an expedition lead by Pippo Cappellano found some mysterious ruins with strange carved symbols on the ocean floor near the coast of Lanzarote.

At a depth of about 50 feet and over an area of 900 square feet, they found large flat stones that look like they were carefully put into place.

These blocks were followed by wide stone steps. But thatís not all. On the other side, near the Moroccan coast, a several miles long undersea wall has been discovered and photographed. What is hidden on the bottom of the Atlantic? Are these the remains of the sunken civilization Atlantis? Like
with the Yonaguni structures, many orthodox scientists claim they are natural forms, without adequate research, seemingly to avoid having to admit any mistakes in our history books.

The underwater structures in the Canary region were found at a depth of only 50 feet. That means they were probably still above water some 2000 years ago. Therefore researchers concluded that Romans, Greeks or Phoenicians must have built them.

But none of them ever colonized the Canaries, so what would drive them to build these structures?

There is indeed evidence, like some Roman amphoras, that indicates Europeans stopped by in the region, but their presence was probably of no substantial importance. It seems more logical to follow another path. Not everything of Atlantis sank, so these structures could still be the last remains of
the empire, swallowed by the sea around the time of Christ.

MdSungate scanned this picture for us from Charles Bertlitz's "Atlantis, the Eighth Continent"

A bit hard to see, Desi. 

There is another picture somewhere by the Italian underwater journalist Pippo Cappellano.

I'll leave a space for it for when I find it, Desi.  So do check back right here.

The same expedition as in Berlitz's book (Above).



By 1981 an expedition lead by Pippo Cappellano found some mysterious basaltic ruins on the ocean
floor near the coast of Lanzarote.

At a depth of about 50 feet and over an area of 900 square feet, they found large flat stones that
look like they were carefully put into place.
These blocks were followed by wide stone steps. But thatís not all: an undersea wall also was disco-
vered which was formed by recular triangular blocks.
 
 

 

Mr. Cappellano and the structures found
undersea; as all good places where hypo-
thetic Atlantean buildings made of basalt
(...) have been found, also Tenerife has
its own misterious "constructions".





INFO: The basaltic rocks can form geometric structures when suffer high temperatures and pressures, as per example the formations of North Ireland.

Well, it seems so far that Pippo Cappellano is an author of some renown over in Italy, but I don't
know yet if I could buy any books online from the US.  Most of what I found is underwater 'stuff'
for him.  Like a book called the "Underwater Photographer".

Then I found this (in English) and it turns out to be from Andrew Collins:





                                               PHOENICIANS IN THE ATLANTIC


                                           More Discoveries from the Canary Isles




If Professor Collina-Girard wanted to find new evidence for the existence of Atlantis he would have been better citing the archaeological features discovered recently off the island of Lanzarote in the Canaries by underwater explorer Pippo Cappellano. He has detected and filmed rectilinear stone foundations of unquestionable man-made manufacture in around 20-22 metres of water. Pictures of his discovery appear in a recent issue of HERA magazine.

Although the Canaries have been proposed occasionally as the site of lost Atlantis, there is no reason to assume that these structures do belong to Plato's lost island empire. Since they lie only at a depth of 20 or so metres, they would have been above sea-level as recently as the time of Christ, like the lost city of Heraklion found recently off the coast of Alexandria in Egypt.

This is thought to have submerged as a result of a natural cataclysm as recently as AD 600. More likely is that the underwater features off Lanzarote represent evidence for the presence in the archipelago of a proto-Phoenician, Iberic Phoenician or Carthaginian sea-port during the first or second millennium BC.

Only recently, Canaries archaeologist and historian Pablo Atoche PeŮa has released new evidence of a Phoenician and Carthaginian presence in the Canary isles as early as 500 BC. This lends weight to the idea that these maritime peoples regularly made journeys to the archipelago, and perhaps used them as a staging post into the outer ocean. From here the Canary Current takes a vessel towards the islands of Cape Verde, before sweeping it westwards upon the North Equatorial Current towards the Caribbean.

In 100 BC the Roman geographer Statius Sebosus recorded that it was 40 days' sail between the Gorgades, unquestionably the Cape Verde Isles off the West African coast, and the Hesperides, the 'islands in the west' said in classical tradition to have lay beyond the ocean river.

Surely this is a reference to transatlantic journeys made either during or before his age, most probably by Carthaginian and Phoenician voyagers. Thus a line of transmission for information between the Caribbean and the Mediterranean world during the first-century BC supports the view that Atlantis laid in the outer ocean, conceivably in the Caribbean.

                                             Lanzarote: Un Noveau Bimini?





Yes, we are drawing on the French language journals again; this time from Kadath, an
archeological publication from Belgium. The reason, of course, is that the mainstream
English-language archeological journals are notoriously conservative and, well,
mainstreamish!

The catchword in the title is "Bimini," a word which loses nothing in translation, for it is
well-known in that States as one of the Bahamian resort islands.

It was in the waters off Bimini that divers found the famous Bimini "road" or "wall," which
some maintain is constructed of human-sculpted stone blocks.

(See our handbook Ancient Man.)



Lanzarote, on the other hand, is one of the Canary Islands.

Here, too, one finds a submerged, Bimini-like row of apparently man-made blocks of
stones. Some 22 meters down, the blocks are arranged in a sort of staircase, as
shown in the figure. The steps, however, are 40-cm high, too big a step for humans.

Is this structure a submerged pier, an altar, or something else. No one knows.

Possibly relevant is a statuette, stylistically Olmec, which was also found in Lanzarote
waters. (Bajocco, Alf; "Lanzarote: un Nouveau Bimini?" Kadath, no. 66, p. 6, Winter 1987.)



Comment.

The name, Kadath, incidentally comes from the writings of H.P. Lovecraft, a mostly
forgotten, highly imaginative American writer. Kadath was Lovecrafts' great city of the
ancients.

Reference. Ancient Man, mentioned above, is described here."

Nice find, Bianca!  Have you run across anymore pictures?

If I had to choose a place most associated with Atlantis, I'm betting it would be the Canaries!

No, Europa.  That's all I could find.  I have been searching here and in Italy since I
don't know when.....

I agree with you!!!  If there was an Atlantis, the Guanches ARE the descendants.

If you care to, you'll find out a lot more in the last 6/7 pages of MOROCCO  and
EASTERN ATLANTIS, here:

http://atlantisonline.smfforfree2.com/index.php/topic,3238.720.html



That's where this thread comes from.  I am going to try to bring more here.

Desiree has already done so, maybe she'll help some more.

I am now on to the DNA, I'll sure copy it here!!!
