de Prorok, Count Byron Khun
Count Byron Khun de Prorok [1896-1954] has been variously described an American with a Polish title or as a Pole married to an American. He was originally a conventional archaeologist having worked on the site of Carthage. He then developed into an adventurous explorer in the early 1920’s and 1930’s whose escapades would have been worthy of Indiana Jones. Khun de Prorock became convinced that Atlantis had a North African origin.
He was author of a number of books recounting his experiences, including Digging for Lost African Gods. He died unexpectedly in the mid-1950’saccording to a report in the November/December 1958 edition of Sykes’ Atlantis journal. .
