Famously documented by the Greek philosopher Plato, Atlantis was said to be a continent situated in the middle of the Atlantic that was inhabited by a highly advanced and prosperous civilization.
According to legend, the Atlanteans ultimately fell out of favor with the gods and the entire island was submerged beneath the waves. Real-world theories suggest that if Atlantis did exist, it may have been sunk by a tsunami, a sustained period of volcanism or some other ancient disaster.
Whether or not Atlantis was a real place however has long remained a matter of heated debate.
One prominent figure who has long been intrigued by the mystery is filmmaker James Cameron who has been investigating the legend as part of a new TV documentary entitled 'Atlantis Rising'.
"These anchors could be 3,500 to 4,000 years old and establish a harbor in the Atlantic, where I didn't even dare dream to find anchors," said filmmaker Simcha Jacobovici.
"It's easier to find a needle in a haystack than Bronze Age anchors in the Atlantic."
Whether the anchors really did have something to do with Atlantis however remains unclear.
A clip from the documentary, in which the team examine rock carvings, can be viewed below.
