An A-Z Guide To The Search For Plato's Atlantis

Recent Updates

Welcome To Atlantipedia

Plato coverI am currently in the process of re-establishing internal broken bibliographical links. The numbers involved are huge and will take some weeks to complete. As a consequence the number of entries listed  with the suffix (L)  under “Recent Updates” is greatly inflated,  so generally these can be ignored.  So please bear with me. Tony


ATLANTIPEDIA is aimed at providing the most comprehensive source of information regarding the development of Atlantis theories, particularly since Ignatius Donnelly produced his seminal work on the subject towards the end of the nineteenth century.

The content is intended to assist researchers, journalists and anyone with an enquiring mind. Unlike many other sites on the Internet, ATLANTIPEDIA will not be providing open forums, which I have seen so often devolve into time-wasting squabbles between ego-trippers. However, we are open to all ideas and data that might improve the quality of the information on offer and invite emails from readers.

My intention is that Atlantipedia be primarily concerned with the scientific search for Plato’s Atlantis. Speculative theories or alleged psychic revelations without any supporting evidence are as worthless here as they would be in a court of law. Atlantipedia encompasses a wide range of theories and their proponents to include, if I may badly paraphrase, the good, the mad and the unbelievable.
