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.

Principality of Atlantis

The Principality of Atlantis was the concoction of a group of over-enthusiastic Danish Atlantis fans in the 1930’s. They elected the then 79 year old Prince Christian of Denmark, a descendant of Leif Erikson, as their leader. He died in 1938. These enthusiasts also issued their own coins and stamp.*[According to James Bramwell. they were reputed at one time to have had a membership of 25,000[0195.22].]*

One of the group was a Mr Mott who may be the same J. L. Mott referred to elsewhere. My coindoubt is based on a report of a J.L. Mott’s death in the Bahamas in 1932, whereas a Mr. Mott visited a Miami stamp dealer in 1937(a).

Seventy years later gold and silver coins were issued in the name of the Kingdom of Atlantis by the World Proof Numismatic Association of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, purely as a commercial venture.
