Gaffarel, Paul (m)

Paul Gaffarel (1843-1920) was a French historian who in his 1869 work, Rapports de l’Amérique et de l’Ancien Continent [1435] supported an Atlantic location for Atlantis. He believed that the influence of Atlantis could be detected in the Americas, Egypt and the Canaries.

In a later book, Histoire de la découverte de l’Amérique[1436]he records a belief among the native Caribs of the southern Caribbean islands that the Antillies were once a single landmass, with a similar tradition found in Haiti.
