THE TWILIGHT ZONE

A LOST CITY IN SPAIN?

Arts © November 2015

It has been speculated for well over 100 years that there is a still lost city in the southwestern part of Spain, on or near the Guadalquivir River. That lost city is known by several names. The ancient Greeks called it Tartessos, the Romans knew it as Tartessus, and the ancient Hebrews of the Bible referred to it as Tarshish.

There is nothing quite so invigorating and interesting as the story of a long-lost mysterious city. Stories from both archaeology and fiction are replete with such wondrous tales of exploration. It brings to mind more modern fictional stories of archaeologist Indiana Jones, played by actor Harrison Ford.

Tartessos was said to be located to the west of the Pillars of Heracles (Hercules to the ancient Greeks), beyond what is now called the Strait of Gibraltar and close to the mouth of the Guadalquivir River in the southwest of Spain.

This land, the Iberian Peninsula, has had many conquerors, including the Celts, Tartessians, Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks, Romans, Visigoths, Moors, and the Spanish and Portuguese themselves.

A German archaeologist by the name of Adolf Schulten became interested in Tartessos and was convinced that it and the legendary lost city of Atlantis were one and the same place. He conducted an expedition in the early 1920s to the Guadalquivir River to try to find Tartessos. Schulten was an historian and archaeologist from Elberfeld, Germany, in the Rhine region. He even wrote a book about Tartessos, which is only available in German and Spanish.
