Physical evidence of settled life comes from either substantial earthworks, stone or clay bricks. Settlements of wood, rushes and mud tend to vanish, so important societies have become almost invisible. In the Amazon, for example, satellite imagery suggests patterns of agriculture and settlements by unknown peoples

    It could be seen as racist by authorities to discuss this in a Western country.

    It's like that question they ask at airports 'Could anyone have interfered with your luggage without your knowledge?'

    'If anyone had done that how would I know?'

    One of the more celebrated ones is Atlantis a city that should have fallen into the ocean and there are a few demolishes that are professed to be Atlantis however not a lot is thought about whether it truly existed and what it resembled aside from it likely was important for Ancient Greece. What's more, we are continually finding new things particularly in the region in and around Israel where archeologists are continually uncovering antiquated destroys some of them relating to lost urban areas in the Bible and as these vestiges are concentrated new information will be acquired.

    This would depend on what qualifies as a civilisation.  They don't just pop up overnight, they're developed over generations.  Most civilisaions are probably a composite of several proto civilisations that joined, were assimilated, or were conquered and eventually developed into the societies that are recorded in history.

    There definitely could be. there used to be a huge landmass in the Caribbean that is now underwater. ancient roads have been discovered underwater there and its thought this is where Atlantis was.
