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.

Reclus, Onésime

ONSIME~1Onésime Reclus (1837-1916) was a French geographer(a)[523] who was convinced that Atlantis was located in North-West Africa in Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia, collectively known as the Maghreb. The Berbers call the Maghreb ‘Tamazgha’, or Land of the Imazighen (plural of Amazigh).

Reclus is credited with coining the word ‘francophone’.

*The Atlantisforschung website commented on Reclus’s book, “newly published in 2013, in which the author locates the ancient Atlantean empire in the Maghreb (mainly in Algeria , Morocco and Tunisia ), reveals a thoroughly complex, polydisciplinary treatment of the research subject that suggests a long-term involvement with the matter.  Thus Onésime Reclus introduced geographic as well as ethnological, linguistic and historical arguments, such as quotes from classical antiquity authors and later Arab and Jewish historians, in support of his assumptions.(b)*

Reclus had a brother, Elisée (1827-1904), who was an anthropologist, an active anarchist and also a believer in the reality of Atlantis.
