Atlantis! Did a highly advanced civilization sink into the sea tens of thousands of years ago? Can the cultures of the Romans, Maya, Incas, Mesopotamians, Greeks and more all be traced back to it? Or is Atlantis just another myth? An oceanic metropolis invented by the Greek philosopher Plato to teach a moral lesson to ancient Athenians? Find out in the wild and crazy ride we have to take to unravel the mystery of today’s Timesuck.
