Wow! This is a super interesting article! I think that it's awesome that people are finally finding out what Atlantis was like! Imagine everything that could be learned if researchers find things or find new information about Atlantis!

I loved this article! As humans, we are usually intrigued by mysteries, and Atlantis is right up there in our cultural mythos. Margaret, I love your last sentence.
