A unique city found off the coast of Israel
< p> Off the coast of Israel, they discovered the real Atlantis – a unique huge city that was inhabited 9000 years ago. This reports IFL Science.
Atlin Yan is a once prosperous settlement that was wiped out thousands of years ago by a powerful tsunami. Now it is at a depth of ten meters.
In a large area of 40,000 square meters, marine archaeologists have found houses, wells and even graves. Along with the bones of domesticated sheep, pigs and dogs, large rectangular stone structures still standing under the waves are believed to have been used as animal pens or as a fence to separate cultivated fields.
In the center of the settlement stand seven large stone monoliths surrounding a freshwater spring. It is believed that this structure served as a place for water rituals.
Before the devastating tsunami hit the settlement, it was much higher than the current sea level and was distinguished by very fertile lands.
