This is, of course, just a joke–you’d never get that many reporters interested in an archaeology story that didn’t have pyramids and/or mummies in it.
The truth about Atlantis is: it’s a made up place made up by a guy who liked making up made up places.
There are still plenty of mysteries in history for us to wonder about. “How did people put rocks on top of other rocks?” is not one of them.
It’s a lot like regular archaeology, actually, you just replace “ritual object” with “kinky sex toy.”
