Atlantis! The legendary lost continent comes under the close scrutiny of archaeologist David Hatcher Childress. From Ireland to Turkey, Morocco to Eastern Europe, or remote islands of the Mediterranean and Atlantic, Childress takes the reader on an astonishing quest for mankind's past. Ancient technology, cataclysms, megalithic construction, lost civilisations, and devastating wars of the past are all explored in this amazing book. Childress challenges the sceptics and proves that great civilisations not only existed in the past but that the modern world and its problems are reflections of the ancient world of Atlantis.

Despite the cover and title page, the series is the Catalog of Anomalies and is devoted to documenting phenomena in a range of fields that science cannot explain. This is the first volume to concern archaeology. Mere size or mass is not sufficient for mention; the criteria include high degrees of innovation, precocious use of technology and science, apparent lack of purpose, and the unknown identity of the builders. Findings here are used as evidence that the Vikings ventured well beyond Newfoundland, that extensive pre-Columbian contacts existed between the Old and New Worlds, and that vastly superior civilizations preceded our own. A subsequent volume will cover buildings per se. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Ever since Plato created the legend of the lost island of Atlantis, it has maintained a uniquely strong grip on the human imagination. For two and a half millennia, the story of the city and its catastrophic downfall has inspired people--from Francis Bacon to Jules Verne to Jacques Cousteau--to speculate on the island's origins, nature, and location, and sometimes even to search for its physical remains. It has endured as a part of the mythology of many different cultures, yet there is no indisputable evidence, let alone proof, that Atlantis ever existed. What, then, accounts for its seemingly inexhaustible appeal? Richard Ellis plunges into this rich topic, investigating the roots of the legend and following its various manifestations into the present. He begins with the story's origins. Did it arise from a common prehistorical myth? Was it a historical remnant of a lost city of pre-Columbians or ancient Egyptians? Was Atlantis an extraterrestrial colony? Ellis sifts through the "scientific" evidence marshaled to "prove" these theories, and describes the mystical and spiritual significance that has accrued to them over the centuries. He goes on to explore the possibility that the fable of Atlantis was inspired by a conflation of the high culture of Minoan Crete with the destruction wrought on the Aegean world by the cataclysmic eruption, around 1500 b.c., of the volcanic island of Thera (or Santorini). A fascinating historical and archaeological detective story, Imagining Atlantis is a valuable addition to the literature on this essential aspect of our mythohistory. From the Hardcover edition.

Lesen Sie die besten Werke großer Schriftsteller,Poeten, Autoren und Philosophen auf Ihrem Reader. Dieses Werk bietet zusätzlich * Eine Biografie/Bibliografie des Autors. Der Kritias (griechisch Κριτίας, latinisiert Critias; auch Ἀτλαντικός Atlantikos genannt ist ein in Dialogform verfasstes, Fragment gebliebenes Spätwerk des griechischen Philosophen Platon. Es besteht vor allem aus dem auch im Timaios erwähnten platonischen Mythos vom Krieg zwischen Athen und Atlantis und beschreibt beide Staatsutopien detailliert, wobei der Text im Bericht des Mythos unvermittelt abbricht. Der Kritias ist Teil einer ursprünglich geplanten Trilogie, zusammen mit Timaios und Hermokrates. Aufgrund der Kürze des Kritias und seiner inhaltlichen Überschneidung mit dem Timaios werden beide Dialoge häufig als Timaios-Kritias zusammengefasst. (aus wikipedia.de)
