Perhaps one of the most famous or maybe infamous mysteries from the early days up to the present times revolves around the Bermuda Triangle. It is a mythical triangular section in the Atlantic, approximately confined within Miami, Puerto Rico and Bermuda. Lots of questions were raised with regards to the disappearance of dozens of planes and ships. Some were explained and some still remains shrouded in mystery. Covering about 500 thousand square miles of ocean from the southeastern point of Miami, Florida, the triangular section was referred to as the Bermuda Triangle or the Devils Triangle.
Harappan civilization was unable to su rvive natural catastrophe and 9 nomadic invasions, and it vanished from history. Un til the mid-19th century, it was forgotten or “lost”, even by the people who lived i n the vicinity of its sand-covered ruins. Between about 1500 and 1000 B.C., as the cities of the Indus region crumbled into ruins, one archaeological – historical theory ascribes that Aryan invaders from central Asia moved into the fertile Indus plains an d pushed into the Ganges River Valleys to the east. It took these warlike people m any centuries to build a civilization that rivalled that of the Harappans. This Invasion theory by the Aryans, strengthened by the British Empire especially after 1857, has si nce been argued against from noted Indians like Dayananda Saraswati, Aurobindo and Amb edkar and Western scholars like Edmund Leach, Michel Danino and others.
Have you ever fantasized about a large, mythical city rich with silver, gold, rare exotic wildlife, and some of the best, most advanced technology? Atlantis is a story told by Plato that long ago there was a utopian civilization in the Atlantic, but it was destroyed and sank to the ocean floor. Plato’s Atlantis has been talked about now for thousands of years. While some people believe Atlantis really existed others believe this advanced civilization only existed in Plato’s mind. Based on research it appears that the legend of Atlantis is fictional and no traces have been found from the lost city that proves its existence.
In April 1970, Smithson built the Spiral Jetty, a coil 1500 feet long and approximately 15 feet wide, in the Great Salt Lake. The Spiral Jetty was built with black rocks. They were covered with white salt crystals over time, and formed a strong contrast to the red lake water colored by algae.
Hurricane Irma Hurricanes appear and throw our world into chaos; over the years, hurricanes have caused extreme destruction all over the globe. In September, Hurricane Irma struck and removed everything in its path. Although the amount of destruction caused was devastating, precautions were taken to help save lives and avoid as much damage as possible. Hurricane Irma escalated quickly, yet humans still remain unsure on how to stop these storms from occurring. Irma originally was a tropical wave that was located off the coast of Africa.
Water has a part in why Ulysses didn’t get back to Ithaca for twenty years. The water currents, changed by the wind, made it so that he couldn’t get back. On page 18, a massive whirlpool was mentioned. The whirlpool was so big that you could see the bottom of the ocean from the surface. The whirlpool was in a strait, and Ulysses had to choose between the whirlpool and a monster.
It is believed that at one time, possibly around the time Arthur was said to exist, the hill could have been surrounded by marsh and water. This would have successfully made Tor an island. In 1191, the Glastonbury monks linked Glastonbury to Arthur and excavated the site. Seven feet down was a stone slab, underneath which was found a lead cross! The cross read: "HIC IACET SEPULTUS INCLITUS REX ARTURIUS IN INSULA AVALONIA," which correctly translated would say: "Here lies buried the renowned King Arthur in the Isle of
Lisbety Robaina Professor Pat Leitch ENC1102 - 852088 30 June 2015 Casa Grande Ruin National Monument Casa Grande Ruin National Monument, which is situated in the flat plain of central Arizona in between the Gila and Santa Cruz rivers, close to Coolidge and about 15 miles from the town of Casa Grande. It was abandoned around 1450 CE. Casa Grande means “big house” and it was first documented by 17th century Spanish explorers who described the structure as a four story building, as large as a castle and equal to the largest church in these lands of Sonora. Casa Grande was rediscovered, along with the romantic Spanish accounts, by nineteenth-century Americans who marveled at the ruin 's size, sketched and measured it, and speculated about its
I think the three main reasons are: Natural disasters, foreign invasions, and the city’s military problems. One of the biggest reasons to explain this disaster is the never ending natural disasters. In three-hundred-thirty-six CE, the city of Rome was shook by a deadly and devastating Earthquake. (Doc F). The Earthquake shook the Mediterranean sea along with the land, causing an additional flood.
In 1700 bce Crete was hit by earthquakes which destroyed many structures. After the earthquakes hit the minoans rebuilt the structures. In 1500 bc more earthquakes hit this time taking not only the structures but also the minoans with it. There are many myths that involve Crete. Some of which include; the myth of Rhea hiding Zeus in a cave on Crete, the place here Hercules performed his seventh labor, and the one most people know; Theseus and the minotaur.
Atlantis was fictional island mentioned within an allegory on the hubris of nations in plato’s works Timaeus and Critias, where it represents the antagonist naval power that besieges. Atlantis sunk into the Atlantic ocean after it was hit by a volcano eruption. Atlantis is 9000 years old, before the time of solon or a approximately 9600 B.C. Atlantis was built around aquaventure, a 141 acre waterscape which include fresh and saltwater lagoons, pools,marine habitats, and water slides and river rides. As of 2014, Atlantis has not been found, but researchers and scientists suggest that had Atlantis ever existed, the ost city would have sunk either during the pleistocene ice ages or around 1500 B.C.
Many witnesses said they could hear two distinct explosions few second apart. If it was only attacking then it would only be 1 explosion not 2 explosions. Another reason why it was external mine because the report from the diver who swam down and invent the bottom plate of the ship. The 3 metal plates of the ship were bent inward however, if it was an internal explosion, then it the metal plates would be bent outward not inward. The 1911 report with Vreeland Broad had agreed that it was a explosion of the magazines were triggered by an external force BUT the damage to the USS Maine was more powerful that the Sampson Board which was the 1898 report.
Different studies have showed that the mantle plumes and the hot spots have different shapes and size. An evidence that we have that backs up the hot spots and plumes is the Hawaiian Island. The Hawaiian Island it said that its formed right in the middle of an Ocean, the Pacific Ocean, during the time that the Hawaiian Island had formed, there was a lot of studies to do because scientist had no idea of how it could be possible for an island to form in the middle of a plate away from its boundaries. A scientist, Wilson, “suggested in the 1960’s that the convection in the underling mantle produced what we now know as a hot spot, and that the islands arose from the magma poking through the sea flow as the plate moved over the hot spot.” This Hawaiian Island Chain is one of the proofs that we have that show the plate movements over the hot spots where also earthquakes help a lot in the hot spot formation. It is said the Hawaiian hot spot appears to be deep and wide and it’s said that as wide as where it could feed three volcanoes at the same time.
Reagan uses allusion, or reference to past literary works or people, with Sir Francis Drake in order to use a common day of loss; it would remind the people of a historical figure that connects with the disaster of The Challenger. “On this day three hundred and ninety years ago, the great explorer Sir Francis Drake died aboard a ship off the coast of Panama.” (Reagan 2). This quote provided the audience with a comparison to one of the most considerable explorers; depicting a picture of the fallen heroes to be seen as intrepid and “dedicated to their cause.” (Wagoner 1). “Their dedication was, like Drake’s, complete.” (Reagan 2). Reagan uses this allusion because as the leader of the nation, he felt the need to console the people in it.
INTRODUCTION The Cretaceous Period, spanning 65.5-146 million years ago (Mya), was a world different from what we are familiar with today. Planetary changes during this period included the extinction of dinosaurs and drastic global warming. The breakup of the super continent Pangea had started about 30 Mya, and seaways had begun to form and cover landmass that had once been a part of the super continent (Geologic Time). Today, scientists know that one of these landmasses, the North American continent as we now know it, was at one point covered by a vast inland sea known as the Western Interior Seaway. The Seaway stretched from the Arctic Circle down to the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, and spanned most of the continent.
