THE LOST CITY OF ATLANTIS.....FINALLY FOUND?
Where Atlantis is
Atlantis is believed to be off of the Bahamas, near the Greek island of Santorini, or most recently, off the coast of Cadiz,Spain. But nobody knows for sure.
How Atlanteans
lived
Plato's story described a perfect, or utopian society. Atlanteans were vegetarians and never harmed animals.

Atlanteans were people who lived in Atlantis...obviously.
Scientists don't know...but some people think Atlantis is real and some people think it is not real. There are many reasons it could be real, but they still aren't sure about it. That can be a problem for scientists because it's hard to research about something when nobody knows if it is real.
What Atlantis is
Atlantis is a city that a greek philosopher, Plato told stories about in 360 BC.
Is Atlantis real?
How Atlantis got lost
Scientists think that Atlantis got swept up by a tsunami or a volcanic eruption. What is left, is thought to be at the bottom of the ocean. This might be why it hard to find.
How some survived
Some Atlanteans swam or rowed to the shores of Europe and Africa when Atlantis sank.
