Fabled city has been discovered, claims explorer.
American explorer Robert Sarmast, who has been searching for Atlantis for ten years, has declared he has found it.
He believes a basin lying just off Cyprus could in fact be a sunken land mass. Sonar scans show man-made walls and trenches, but as yet, he is unable to provide any physical evidence that his discovery is indeed Atlantis.
Atlantis has long been a staple of science fiction - the new Stargate spin-off taken its name from the mythical city, there's been two explanations for its disappearance in Doctor Who, and rumours were once rife that a further Indiana Jones film would deal with its discovery.
There was also a MacGyver TV movie, The Lost Treasure of Atlantis. Mind you, this appeared to have been eaten by Bryan Blessed and looked like it had been filmed on the Play School set, so it's probably best forgotten.
