If there used to be a kingdom, why isn't there a trace of it?

We've been taught history of kingdoms. I had to believe what was taught in history books. Nowadays people are getting smarter and much more innovative and have critical thinking. Let me go straight to the point. There used to be kingdoms but none of the remnants was found not even a slight trace was seen around the supposed locations. What was found were only relics supposed to be related to the empire not the remnants of important parts of the palace constructions such as royal rooms, etc. Historians have worked hard to find where the remains of the empire are?

How could it be moved to a better place? It's supposed to be a large construction.

No documents. Negara Kertagama (an Old Javanese eulogy is the only source of information.

It could be that the people who study that kind of thing know all about it but cannot put it all together as of yet because they might need a strong back up proof history like document to prove it. Atlantis was supposed to be in Spanish waters and all that but maybe it was something similar but they have not been able to prove that either.

@yanzalong There could be so many places like that lost in time that we will never know who they were and what they were doing there and what they were about.

What do you mean exactly? The historians are unsure that this was a kingdom, or are they questioning the fact that there are no trace how the kingdom disappeared?

Even if there were floodings, earthquakes and all kinds of natural disasters, it would be impossible to erase everything. No matter how ancient those remains are. Maybe historians had it all wrong.

The source may be misleading or only folk tales.
