Local Winnebago or Ho-Chunk individuals have discussed a “depressed town of rock lean-tos” under Rock Lake since the mid-1830s when the principal pioneers came in the southern area of Wisconsin between – what is currently Milwaukee and the legislative center at Madison.
Until two duck trackers looked over the side of their boat during a water-getting dry spell toward the beginning free from the 20th century, their legend was dismissed as basic Indian fiction.
They saw a huge pyramidal design resting dim and colossal in the profundities of Rock Lake. From that point forward, the covered development has been covered in debate due to disintegrating subsurface permeability supported by contamination.
Dr. Fayette Morgan, a nearby dental specialist and early nonmilitary personnel pilot in Wisconsin, was the principal individual to see Rock Lake from above on April 11, 1936. He saw the dim states of two rectangular constructions on the lower part of the lake close to its middle from the open cockpit of his thin biplane orbiting at 500 feet.
He made various passes and saw their ordinary extents and tremendous size, which he accepted to be in excess of 100 feet each. Dr. Morgan arrived to refuel and ran home for his camera, then, at that point, took off quickly to get the indented objects on film. The lake’s lowered landmarks had blurred in the late evening light when he returned over it.
Ensuing and rehashed endeavors to photo or even rediscover them from the air fizzled until 1940 when they were found again by a neighborhood pilot, Armand Vandre, and his back cockpit eyewitness, Elmer Wollin.
In any case, as their single-motor plane banked over the lake’s south end at under 1,000 feet, they were shocked by an alternate sight. An enormous, impeccably focused triangle structure pointing due north lay under them, under twenty feet of water. A couple of dark circles remained close to one another towards the pinnacle.
No less than ten designs might be found underneath the outer layer of Rock Lake. Skin jumpers and sonar have planned and shot two of them. No. 1, named Limnatis Pyramid, has a 60-foot base width, 100-foot length, and a stature of 18 feet, albeit something like 10 feet of it transcends the silty sludge.
It’s a shortened pyramid made for the most part of circular, dark stones. The stones on the shortened top are squarish. It is feasible to see the leftovers of mortar covering. The length of every one of the delta’s equivalent sides was assessed by Vandre and Wollin to be 300 feet. A little, tight-covered island, perhaps 1,500 feet in length and 400 feet wide, lay upper east of the triangle.
More astounding was a straight way that ran submerged from the southern shore to the apex of the covered delta. At the point when Frank Joseph referenced the perception to Lloyd Hornbostel, a neighborhood geologist, he thought the line was the remainders of a huge stone waterway that associated Rock Lake to Aztalan, three miles far off.
Aztalan is right now a 21-section of the land archeological park with a barricaded divider that to some degree encases the Pyramids of the Sun and Moon, two earth sanctuary hills. The stylized focus was twice as enormous at its prime in the late thirteenth century. Then, at that point, it had three round dividers with lookouts encasing a ternion of pyramidal earthworks finished off with wooden sanctuaries.
Aztalan had a place with the Upper Mississippian Culture, which flourished all through the American Midwest and into the South in its last stage, starting roughly 1,100 AD, while scientifically measuring tests showed its most established known roots in the third century BC.
Its populace crested at 20,000 individuals, who dwelled on the two sides of the dividers. They were going by stargazer clerics who effectively adjusted their pyramids for the estimation of a few cosmic occasions like the colder time of year solstice, moon stages, and Venus areas.
Around the year 1320, the Aztalaners bafflingly put a match to their city, leaving its fire inundated dividers. They withdrew far toward the south, as per enduring Winnebago oral practice. Their mass migration ended up matching with the unexpected advancement of the Aztec state in the Valley of Mexico.
“The finding of lowered structures there may predict a far bigger one to come when we at long last direct our review into the ocean and test its profundities for the lost wellspring of earthly civilization—Atlantis.”
Rock Lake is critical for its covered stone constructions ― pyramidal entombment hills of men who worked in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula’s copper mines from 3000 BC to 1200 BC. The mines were probably burrowed and constrained by Atlantean engineers, subsequently, at minimum, a portion of the submerged burial chambers incorporate the bones of Atlantean workers, as per Frank Joseph.
