An engineer from the UK has found something interesting on the bottom of the sea at the exact location that legend has the lost city of Atlantis being. When using a new ocean exploring feature of Google Earth the man found a series of gridlines on the ocean floor 620 miles off the coast of Africa in an area called the Madeira plane.

The lines are in a criss cross pattern and are about 3.5 miles beneath the surface. The site is believed to be one of the most prominent locations of the lost city of Atlantis by researchers.

Google says that the lines are not the city of Atlantis, but are artificial data captures by the data creation process when ships towed the sonar buoys that recorded the ocean floor.
