A lost civilization more than 1.6 times the size of the United Kingdom has actually been found off the coast of Australia, according to a brand-new research study from the journal Quaternary Science Reviews.
According to the journal, “this now-drowned area,” which “existed as a substantial island chain,” was highly likely to have actually offered important resources and haven to human populations living more than 2.5 million years earlier.
According to the research study put together by the journal, research study of the now-submerged continental rack discovered proof of an inland sea, saltwater and freshwater lakes.
The rack is found off the coast of the northern area of Kimberley on a landmass that links to New Guinea.
“We compete that the existence of a substantial island chain on the Northwest Shelf … helped with the effective dispersal of the very first maritime explorers from Wallacea, developing a familiar environment for their maritime economies to adjust to the large terrestrial continent of Sahul,” the journal states.
The rack, when believed to be a desert, might have supported in between 50,000 and 500,000 individuals and might have worked as a bridge for individuals to stroll onto Australia before it ended up being the enormous island it is called today.
Sounds a lot like Atlantis to us.
