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.

Aeolian Islands

Lipari Islands

The Lipari or Aeolian Islands are located north east of Sicily. The archipelago aeolian_islands_mapincludes the continually active volcano of Stromboli. It was another of the islands, named Vulcano after Vulcan, the Roman god of fire, which gave us the word ‘volcano’.

The group of islands is the preferred location for Atlantis by writers such as Winfried Huf and Vlaceslav Jurikov.

Further information regarding the extent of this archipelago from the time of the Last Glacial Maximum is available on the mapmistress website(b) .

Volcanic pumice from the archipelago has been identified as far away as Egypt and dated to the 18th Dynasty(a) .

Jurikov, Vlaceslav

Vlaceslav Jurikov, a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences announced in 1994 that Atlantis had been located near the Lipari or Aeolian Islands off the northern coast of Sicily. He specified a point 15km from Cape Peloro at a depth of about 500 feet. This region is also favoured by Winfried Huf as the centre of the Atlantean sphere of influence.

He questions Plato’s report that Atlantis was submerged in a day and a night, suggesting instead that it was a much slower process allowing its inhabitants time to emigrate.

Jurikov further asserts that refugees from Atlantis fled to the Ukraine bringing with them the symbol of Poseidon, the trident, which is now found on the coat of arms of Ukraine.
