View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

This absorbing book explores the possibility that the Atlantis story represents a distortion of a number of myths and legends already present in the ancient Greece and Egypt of the time. Putting more emphasis on Diodorus Siculus' account of the Atlantians, who places this people somewhere in Africa, is it possible that the island Plato spoke of was actually present in a lake not far from a large mountain? Piecing together the key details given in Diodorus, is it possible to identify these features in the Africa of today? In a fascinating piece of historical detective work, the author is able to reveal to the reader precisely how a legend was born.

About the Author:

Born in 1969, Greg Alexander has lived his entire life in South Buckinghamshire, England. Although not university educated he has benefited from years of self-education. Besides his original study on Atlantis he has also written on the subjects of Stonehenge and the Druids, again arguably breaking new ground in each area.
