Old Oswestry Hill Fort

Old Oswestry Hill Fort in Shropshire, England has been claimed as the Citadel of Atlantis by Henry B. Ambrose in his modestly titled book, I Found Atlantis.

In 2008, what has become known as the Pegasus Stone was discovered near the entrance to the fort. The stone has a clearly defined depiction of a horse(a). It is known that there was a horse cult within the Cornovii tribe.
