The city was beautiful, inhabited by a seafaring civilization with advanced engineering, monumental architecture and a glittering capital. But the people became materialistic and corrupt. Then, the stars shifted and the sun rose from a different direction. Volcanic eruptions spewed torrents of lava and earthquakes tore the ground apart. The city was submerged, wiping the land off the world's maps forever.


The myth of Atlantis was created by the Greek philosopher Plato in 400BC. The story tantlized mankind with visions of a paradise lost. Over 2400 years later Rand and Rose Flem-Ath gathered evidence that the civilization could have actually existed. But their investigation into this ancient mystery lasted two decades taking them from their home in Nanaimo, Vancouver Island, on the west coast of Canada, to the reading room of the British Museum, in London.

By connecting modern scientific discoveries to ancient manuscripts, maps and myths, that the Flem-Aths found evidence to support their radical theory that since 10 000BC, the remains of the lost civilization of Atlantis had been buried beneath the ice of Antarctica.
The Flem-Aths were not the first researchers to make the connection with geological disaster. Stories from native Americans about the mythology of the Orient and the Judeo-Christian Bible, tells a similar tale. Plato said that Atlantis was destroyed by a cataclysmic disaster around 9600BC, at least 4000 years before the currently accepted start of modern civilization.
