The lost city of Atlantis is a mysterious place which has roused the interest of historians and archaeologists for hundreds of years.
It was first mentioned by the Ancient Greek philosopher Plato around 1,600 years ago when he described it as a naval empire that ruled the western parts of the known world.
He wasn’t writing from experience or through a story he had heard: he invented Atlantis purely as a fictional entity to convey a message.
