Europes 'Rondels' or rounded 'Atlantean-style' causeways
- Europe's oldest 'rondels' with a few 'Atlantis Marina' typesBritish 'Causewayed' camps use elaborate rammed-earth concentric walls and moats. These are often associated with 'forts' or walls surrounding farms with old-style round-houses. More than one author has noted the resemblance to the Capital city of Atlantis by Socrates in Plato's dialogues. Yet there are hundreds of these structures over a very wide geographic area. There are those in the Americas also.
