The stunning and highly controversial find made by marine treasure hunters using side-scanning sonar to detect shipwrecks in the Baltic Sea has finally been identified as a submerged monumental construction from the Paleolithic era. The giant circular seafloor promontory measuring ~60m in diameter is actually a terraced monument built by the highly advanced Atlantean civilization over 14,000 years ago.
Co-discoverer and Ocean X team leader Dennis Aasberg describes just a few of the geometric features presented by the gargantuan disc-shaped temple rising above the sea floor, likening it to concrete:
It looks like a round object separated from the bottom. It looks… like concrete. When we brush it off its [surface is] black. The object looks the same underneath as on the upper side. Same color too. Just like a plate on the bottom. And it has something that looks like big stairs… perhaps one meter high each step. Its strange… We have not been able to find more holes besides the 2 meter hole with a [recessed] square [formation] around it.
Prohibitive conditions severely limit filming of the ancient monumental structure, especially rough seas and the very poor visibility of <1m near the bottom. Animated digital terrain models allow a clearer perspective of the massive proportions and complex geometric configuration of the submerged Atlantean monument (above). The greatest hindrance to the seafloor site investigation is an intense electromagnetic vortex that perpetually interferes with all types of electrical equipment situated on or above the ancient monument –in the vertical water column, onboard ships at the sea surface and even affecting low-flying airplanes.
