Brentjes, Burchard (L)
Burchard Brentjes (1929- ) is a Professor of Oriental archaeology. A few years ago he wrote Atlantis: The Book of the Angels promoting the frequently held view that Atlantis had been Utopian. This is in spite of the fact the country described by Plato was an absolute monarchy with the power of life and death and which operated a feudal system of military conscription and also engaged in the primitive sacrifice of bulls. However, Brentjes also reviews the various Atlantis theories since ( post Donnelly) exposing the pseudoscience upon which so many are based.
