Scotland was nominated by William Comyns Beaumont, an eccentric native of that country, as the true location of Atlantis in his remarkable book published in the middle of the 20th century. He contended that a tsunami generated by a land collapse in Norway submerged part of the east coast of Scotland in 584 BC resulting in the submergence of Atlantis. Understandably this theory did not generate much support. However, he would have been very interested to read of more recent studies have that a huge tsunami did hit Scotland around 6,000 BC as a result of submarine storegga off the coast of Norway. Ulf Erlingsson now contends that this storegga may have been responsible for the creation of Plato’s impassable mud shoals in the region of the Dogger Bank in the North Sea.
