(Courtesy of Mark, this is the original 1978 article that ran in the New York Times, discussing the findings of ruins purported to be the remains of Atlantis.  I am typing the whole thing manually as we only have it in PDF form at the moment)

Soviet Scientist Says Ocean Site May Be Atlantis

By Craig Whitney

Special to the New York Times

Moscow, May 20 - Plato, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and all you science fiction writers who have puzzled over the lost Continent of Atlantis, move over for Prof. Andrei Arkadyevich Aksyonov.

Soviet scientists may maintain that the so-called Bermuda Triangle, an area in the Atlantic where mysterious disappearances of ships and planes is said to have occurred, is nothing but water and that flying saucers are optical illusions. But Prof. Aksyonov says he has photographs of man-made stone walls and staircases at a depth of about 200 feet in the Atlantic Ocean, 275 miles southwest of the Portuguese coast. 


"It's possible that it's a part of Atlantis, maybe not the whole thing, but a part," Dr. Aksynov said.  He is a man of established scientific reputation, a deputy director of the Institute of Oceanology of the Soviet Academy of Sciences.

His evidence, he concedes, is limited:  two pictures showing eleven stones that he believes bear the mark of human handiwork.
