Fatih Hodžic (1956-) was born in Bosnia and Herzegovina and is now living in Slovenia. He is a computer science graduate from the University of Maribor. His interest in prehistory and ancient cultures led him to develop a new theory(a), which places the location of Atlantis in the Southern Adriatic Basin. He contends that the destruction of Atlantis was a consequence of an asteroid impact, recorded in Greek mythology as Phaëton, that struck either the Ionian or the Tyrrhenian Sea just west of Sicily.
Hodžic also claims that the Pillars of Heracles were situated at the Strait of Otranto and that the 70,000 stone blocks or stecaks spread through Bosnia and the surrounding region were remnants of Atlantean structures. Hodžic’s ideas are interesting but not wholly convincing.
