Marcello Cosci (1929- 2009) was former head of Siena University’s archaeological photo-interpretation department.
After extensive studies of satellite imagery for 3 years, Professor Cosci arrived at the remarkable conclusion that Sherbro Island off the coast of Sierra Leone had features that matched Plato’s description of Atlantis.
Or this could be an ancient African civilization before it was flooded. -Sola
A paper submitted to the 2008 Atlantis Conference by Cosci is now available online.
Cosci released a book in Italy detailing how descriptions of Atlantis, such as three ditches around a citadel and a canal match modern pictures of Sherbro.
While the existence of Atlantis has never been confirmed, it was first mentioned in the writings of the Greek philosopher Plato around 427-347 B.C. Plato said the island and its advanced civilization were destroyed by a natural disaster, now akin to a tsunami.
