What Is Left After a Lost City?
Gösta Lindwall, April 18, 2021
What is left after a lost city? — This question is often aired in discussions and films about ancient civilisations lost in the far past.
As an example, it is common to depict a hypothetical skyscraper where the viewers can follow it's downfall and decay until there is nothing left but the stony foundations. In our book Tale of a Sunken City we follow in the same manner a hypothetical coastal town through tsunamis and floods until it's covered by hundreds of feet of water.
The illustration below depicts a building before and after a cataclysm, up until it rests submerged on the seafloor.
This illustration shows an ideal situation where the aged construction ends up on a hard bottom not covered by sand and silk. The inspiration comes from underwater pictures showing remains of old buildings.
