Tracking Lost Civilizations

Mar 8, 2011

Could it be true?!  The lost city of Atlantis has been found!  Well, not yet, but a University of Hartford archeologist is on the case.

Archeologists have been surveying marshlands in Spain where a space satellite photograph identified what looked like a submerged city in the midst of one of the largest swamps in Europe.  What they found might surprise you. Coming up, we’ll talk about the search for Atlantis, previewing an upcoming National Geographic documentary.

And then we’ll check in with National Geographic explorer-in-residence Spencer Wells, who has been using DNA from people all over the world to document and create the first-ever map of human migration – showing how humans came to populate the planet after leaving Africa some 60,000 years ago.

The National Geographic Documentary Finding Atlantis will air this Sunday March 13 at 9PM.  There will be an advance screening of the film tomorrow at 7PM at the University of Hartford’s Wilde Auditorium.

Spencer Wells will speak Friday March 11 at 7:30 pm at the Garde Arts Center in New London.
