Vladimir Pakhomov was born in 1943 in Central Russia. He is a professional mathematician and a researcher into ancient structures, calendars, mythology and astronomy.
He has a website(a) in English that, among other subjects, offers a fairly standard outline of the ‘Atlantis in the Atlantic’ school of thought(d). His only claim to ‘originality’ is his over-imaginative identification of the trident of Poseidon as a representation of outline of the islands of Atlantis as viewed from the sea! This, like the stopped clock being correct twice a day, could only be true from one specific direction.
Pakhomov has also written(b)(c) about the Giza pyramids and Sphinx including a pathetic attempt to relate contour outlines on the plateau with a map of the North American continent. These two Web Pages are intended to be teasers to encourage readers to purchase his e-book, an intention that failed to prompt me to buy.
