Thread Name: Folklore: city that sank into the sea
Subject: Folklore: city that sank into the sea
We just watched a Time Team episode (archeology TV show) on the island of Nevis in the Caribbean. The first European capitol of Nevis was Jamestown, and legend has it that Jamestown sank into the sea during an earthquake, and fishermen say that sometimes one can hear the church bells ringing in the depths.
I have heard a similar tale from Wales.
Does anybody know of another, similar legend from another place? How many sunken cities are there, with ghostly church bells or not?
