A majority of people will know of Atlantis. It is a Greek, fictional island, misregarded as oral history. Atlantis is mentioned in Plato's works Timaeus and Critias and is placed in the Atlantic Ocean.

Then, I recently learned of Mu. Mu was thought to be located in the Atlantic Ocean. It was believed to belong to the Egyptians and Mesoamericans before Mu was lost.

I thought lost continents were only in Greek stories, but if you find it somewhere else, it will be in more.

Which cultures/mythologies have a lost continent/advanced civilization story?

  • I read the link you provided, but I don't really understand it. Could you dumb it down for me? – Andrew Johnson Mar 22 '18 at 13:40
  • Thule, Hyperborea, Lemuria, Mu are names perhaps worth a quick look. – sand1 Mar 24 '18 at 15:21
  • @sand1 Mu is based on a delusional 19th century mistranslation of Mayan writings. – Spencer Mar 28 '18 at 22:16
