WASHINGTON, DC (Herald de Paris) - EXCLUSIVE - Researchers have revealed the first images from the Caribbean sea floor of what they believe are the archaeological remains of an ancient civilization.  Guarding the location’s coordinates carefully, the project’s leader, who wishes to remain anonymous at this time, says the city could be thousands of years old; possibly even pre-dating the ancient Egyptian pyramids, at Giza.

The site was found using advanced satellite imagery, and is not in any way associated with the alleged site found by Russian explorers near Cuba in 2001, at a depth of 2300 feet. “To be seen on satellite, our site is much shallower.”  The team is currently seeking funding to mount an expedition to confirm and explore what appears to be a vast underwater city.  “You have to be careful working with satellite images in such a location,” the project’s principle researcher said, “The digital matrix sometimes misinterprets its data, and shows ruins as solid masses.  The thing is, we’ve found structure - what appears to be a tall, narrow pyramid; large platform structures with small buildings on them; we’ve even found standing parallel post and beam construction in the rubble of what appears to be a fallen building.  You can’t have post and beam without human involvement.”

Asked if this city is the legendary city of Atlantis, the researchers immediately said no.  “The romanticized ideal of Atlantis probably never existed, nor will anyone ever strap on a SCUBA tank, jump in the water, and find a city gateway that says, ‘Welcome to Atlantis.’  However, we do believe that this city may have been one of many cities of an advanced, seafaring, trade-based civilization, which may have been visited by their Eurocentric counterparts.”

It is unknown at this time how the city came to be on the sea floor, and not on dry land.  “We have several theories.”

The team hopes to conduct a massive mapping and research expedition, to learn as much as possible about who these people were, before turning the site over to the Caribbean island’s home government.  “Whatever we’ve found does not belong to us,” the project’s leader said, “It belongs to the people of this island, and to the world at-large.  If any pieces are brought to the surface, they belong in the hands of a museum.”

The project team asks that for more information, or to find out how to help fund their research, please contact the Herald de Paris’ publisher, Jes Alexander, at a specially set-up telephone number:  415-738-7811.

WASHINGTON, DC (Herald de Paris) - EXCLUSIVE - The explorers who yesterday announced the discovery of a previously unknown submerged city in the Caribbean have today released the first detailed images of some of the structural evidence they have uncovered.  These images are very grainy, but considering they were shot from an orbiting satellite, are pretty amazing.

The first image shows a rounded structure with spider-like buttressing

The second image shows structural foundation/wall ruins, a clear room layout, and right angles

The third image reveals the tall temple-like structure, the adjacent structures above an engineered platform, and what appears as statuary, below

The fourth image - look carefully at the center - reveals a ruined structure, but what remains standing are two parallel post-and-beam elements.  Architectural historians insist that post-and-beam construction if proof of human hand

The fifth image shows what appears to be a temple-like structure facing another engineered platform, which also has structure above

The Sixth image shows what appear as white vertical (standing) columns - beyond them two more vertical elements that look eerily like human statuary

The last two images are different perspectives on the the temple and the statuary shots, respectively

Guarding the locationís coordinates carefully, the projectís leader, who wishes to remain anonymous at this time, says the city could be thousands of years old; possibly even pre-dating the ancient Egyptian pyramids, at Giza.  Nevertheless, the team claims that these images show that human intervention is responsible for their construction.

The project team asks that for more information, or to find out how to help fund their research, please contact the Herald de Parisí publisher, Jes Alexander, at a specially set-up telephone number:  415-738-7811.
