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.

Poisson, Georges (L)

Georges Poisson (1861-1943) was a professor of Ethnology and President of the Prehistoric Society of France. He wrote a book[512] on the subject of Atlantis in which he linked the original Atlanteans with Cro-Magnon man who flourished 15,000 to 25,000 years ago. However, he contended that Plato’s Atlantis was a Bronze Age civilisation and as such could only be identified with Minoan Crete.

He also daringly contends that the Athenian-Atlantean conflict was a mythical transposition by Plato of a much earlier struggle between Cro-Magnons and their rivals, the Combe-Capelle people.

It also appears that Poisson favoured the idea of a large landmass having existed in the Atlantic offering relatively easy access, if not a complete landbridge between Europe and America and that this landmass gradually disintegrated under the onslaught of rising sea levels, seismic activity and perhaps cosmic impacts.
