The Ancient Astronaut Theory is a fringe theory that claims that the emergence of early human civilization was influenced by extraterrestrial interaction based around a few vague images in ancient sites. Some variations of this theory involve a technologically advanced Atlantean society. This theory is not considered valid by the vast majority of the academic community.
