One hypothesis is that this famous adventurer does not go to the forest to find the missing city, but his aims are finding a new city in the belief of his son, who accompanied with him on the journey.

The satellite images show what Fawcett searched for not far from where he calculated. Fawcett believes that the mystical city’s entrance is located in the Amazon basin, between the two tributaries of Xingu and Tapajos of the Amazon River.

More than 200 landforms along the Brazilian and Bolivian borders show that his hypothesis is somewhat true. The researchers suggest that some of the buildings date back to 200AD, some dating back to the 13th century. Fawcett’s legendary city entrance seems to be farther to the southwest than he intended.

Before this new discovery, people often thought that the Amazon could not survive a large-scale agriculture, not to mention a large city like that. However, studies show that the city was once home to about 60,000 people.

This city is not only composed of small buildings, but some of its buildings are even larger than the Egyptian pyramids.

The devil will keep a student for the school fees and take him to a bottomless lake. He will live there until the devil needs him to create lightning.


People still can’t explain some stories of this school of devil

Scholomance version of Gerard differs from the traditional version of Romania. In Romanian folklore, it is called Solomanari and is located in the world parallel to our world.
