Joining The Dots

I have now published my new book, Joining The Dots, which offers a fresh look at the Atlantis mystery. I have addressed the critical questions of when, where and who, using Plato's own words, tempered with some critical thinking and a modicum of common sense.

Almeida, João de

João de Almeida (1873-1953) was a Portuguese military officer who held the João_de_Almeidafinal rank of General. In 1901 he wrote his undergraduate thesis on the subject of Atlantis, which he published[1474] in 1931 as O Espírito da Raça Portuguesa na sua Expansão Além-Mar(a), where he identified the Atlantic archipelagos of the Azores, Madeiras and Canaries as the remnants of Atlantis. He included two hypothetical maps showing Atlantis as a very large landmass extending westward from mainland of Europe and North Africa and incorporating those three archipelagos as well as the British Isles.

He returned to the subject of Atlantis again in 1950[1475] with a supplement in 1951[1476].
