The Mud Flood hypothesis (or Mud flow hypothesis) is an observational explanation for a variety of perceived flaws in historical records, including ideas regarding Tartary (Tartaria) as an empire or nation-state in Central Asia, attributing these flaws to a global deluge of mud that caused cities and lands to sink into the earth and a consequent rewriting of history by various political and religious authorities over the past two hundred years.
