Many stories are told about the sunken continent Lemuria which stretched from India to Australia. Like Atlantis, this ancient land vanished tens to thousands of years ago for unknown reasons.
Evidence from geologists suggests that this continent split because of rising sea levels towards the end the Mesozoic period.
Researchers in India found that the water level had been a hundred metres lower in 14,000 years. It then rose as a consequence of global warming, eventually covering a large area of landmass.
Our technology is advanced, so finding ruins on this continent seems easy. But, the ocean’s bottom is a hospital, with frequent transformations caused volcanic activity, earthquakes and erosion.
While we may never be able to see the ruins from ancient Lemuria’s past, stories about them will continue traveling the globe in the new information age.
