This revelation is a bit of a surprise and should have beenspotted a long time ago.
I have posted extensively on the existence of what can bestbe called the European Bronze Age whose principal city was Atlantis on the
Gibraltar choke point. This civilization expired in 1159 BCE due to the volcanic event of Hekla producing a tsunami that destroyed waterfront urbancenters throughout the Atlantic littoral. Yet it had operated in full flower for at least a thousand years.
That provided ample time to establish colonies along the sealanes to the mouth of the
Mississippi and to Mesoamerica. Wealready have found some confirming sites in that is located in Bimini, a likelytransshipment point. This presence of sea located centers along the Americancoast supports just how huge the Atlantean trade confederacy was. It was not just a center or two. It was a series of trade factories situatedon the coasts that could support each other by sea in the event of conflict.
The most probable scenario for these locations is a seriesof Bronze Age colonies that persisted for a thousand years.
What is missing is other evidence on land in the form ofpalace ruins. In fact these centerscertainly had some such structures in view of the effort demonstrated. These unfortunately could easily have beenmined out upon the more recent settlement by Europeans.
Alternatively, settlers may have constructed thesefacilities though that does not answer the question of why? The Bronze Age Sea Peoples needed sea accessas a priority to their economy. Settlersdid not at all except for occasional trade in support of a farming enterprise.
This also explains a lot of the poorly understood linageissues among the southern first nations.

"Depth reading and core samples will absolutely rewrite everythingwe know about history." - John Jensen
SARASOTA, Fla. - A Central Florida man believes he has discoveredwhat's left of a highly advanced ancient civilization by using some newtechnology, and says some of the evidence is right here on the Suncoast.
"Looking further, I begin to find the real beauty in Cortez." JohnJensen is no archaeologist. He says he's just an amatuer researcher of what'sunder the water. Well, what he says he's observed from the sky could rewritethe history of the world. "I recognize some patterns that appear tobe man-made, or at least not natural."
He's identified more than 60 sites in places like
Jensen says the sites are now about five feet underwater, and says there areunderwater banks and edges which indicate they were built before the sea levelrise six to seven thousand years ago. "That's the result of the process ofdigging above water, is to dump the refuse on the bank beside it."
"They definitely were modifying their environment. A canal system orharbor system is not that unthinkable at all." Jodi Pracht is theArchaeologist for
As far as Jensen's claims she's not so sure. "At the years this gentlemanis talking about, and the level of modification...the science does not supportthat."
At places like the Indian Mound park in
Jensen says the widths of some of the underwater waterways are larger than the
Jensen says he has uncovered some of the sites in just the past few months;perhaps finding something experts have yet to even see, let alone attempt toexplain...at least for now. "The science is very conservative. There is probably a lot more going on out there than as a professional youwould agree with out loud," says Pracht.
Naturally occurring or man made? How about from something not human atall? Jensen says he doesn't know, but perhaps the answers are just beyondthe water's edge. "Depth reading and core samples will absolutelyrewrite everything we know about history."
Jensen says his work and his theories are catching on. His website,which he says he makes no money on, is now receiving more than 25,000 hits amonth.
