Towers of Atlantis – The Real Evidence (not the Fantasy)
There have been many theories and fantasies about Plato’s Atlantis and other catastrophes in the ancient world. The real evidence is every bit as fascinating!
Here author & researcher Paul Dunbavin updates his hypothesis, first proposed twenty-five years ago in his book Atlantis of the West; that the legend remembers the Megalithic civilization of Western Europe and was centred upon the Middle Neolithic culture of Britain and Ireland.
Citing evidence that anyone may check for themselves, he uses a time-manner-place approach to establish when, how and where an ancient submergence most likely occurred; and that Plato’s narratives are just one among many ancient and modern sources that together point to a similar conclusion.
For too long, academic specialists have hidden behind the safe conclusion: that Plato’s myth remembers the Mediterranean eruption of the Thera volcano. For too long, unscrupulous authors and their publishers have been able to put out books and television series with implausible theories that selectively neglect a vital part of the evidence. In the end you find you are no wiser. Towers of Atlantis is different, it follows where the real evidence leads us.
Legends from both Wales and Ireland speak of a golden tower (or sometimes a glass tower) emerging from the waves. The Irish hero Nemed saw this tower in the Irish Sea, on his way from Spain to Ireland; he called out to the people – but they did not reply. In Welsh legend it was the hero Arthur and his men who made an expedition to the tower but only seven of them returned. Other stories speak of a low-lying plain called Anwwn lying off North Wales; and Irish stories recall a similar flowery plain lost beneath the Irish Sea. Could these legends recall the same ancient plain that is described in the Atlantis myth and in Egyptian and Greek myths of the Elysian Fields?
By first establishing the correct era as 5,000 years ago (3200-3100 BC) the pieces of legendary evidence cross-check each other and fit well with physical evidence of submerged forests around the British coast dating from the same era. The real mystery is why nobody has looked for this legendary place? It has much to do with the indifferent attitude towards mythological evidence that has long been the norm among academics and scientists. This new study brings together the science, the legends and the history in a convincing way.
"Rather than wild speculation, Paul Dunbavin has again offered evidence, although subjectively interpreted, that offers a coherent hypothesis" - Atlantipedia
"A well thought out book which makes you wish the idea of pole shift was taken seriously - or at the least investigated in an unbiased manner." - SIS Journal
