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.

Waterfield, Robin (L)

waterfieldRobin Waterfield (1952- ) is a British classical scholar who now lives in Greece. He has translated the works of a number of the early Greek writers(b), including Herodotus, Plutarch as well as Plato. In 2008 he produced a new translation[924] of Plato’s Timaeus and Critias(a).

Andrew Gregory who wrote the Introduction to Waterfield’s translation rejects the possible existence of Atlantis saying “There is no sunken city in the place he indicates, nor is there any geological remnant (volcanoes, shallow muddy parts of the Atlantic), although there are shoals just beyond the Strait of Gibraltar.”
