Thread Name: Folklore: city that sank into the sea
Subject: RE: Folklore: city that sank into the sea
Thanks for all the interesting stories. So far, only the Welsh story has a moral aspect - that the drowning was the result of human fault. I thought the tendency to find a cause (= someone to blame) would be more common.
On the island of Nevis the archeologists found the relics of Jamestown, but (see OP)but a nearby seashore fort has disappeared. The DH and I wondered if liquifaction of beach sands and silts could have caused the fort to founder, sink, and finally disappear.
