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.

Settegast, Mary (L)

Mary Settegast holds graduate degrees from the University of California at Berkeley and Columbia University and lives in Boulder, Colorado. She is the author of a groundbreaking book[545] on the prehistory of the Mediterranean region and its conformity with settegast_maryPlato’s story of Atlantis. Settegast identifies the migrations of the bearers of the Magdalenian culture southward through Spain and across to Africa and eastward to Egypt and eventually north into the Levant. She believes that this movement of people and their inevitable military encounters which occurred in a pre-literate age are only available to us through the distorted prism of legend and the fragmentary artefacts discovered by archaeologists. Plato’s account can be seen as a half-remembered version of events that took place over a hundred generations earlier. This book has been justifiably acclaimed critically and is a ‘must’ for any serious student of the Atlantis mystery.

Her latest offering[546] again focuses on the time of Zarathustra, or more correctly on the prehistoric period ascribed to Zarathustra by Settegast.
