He explains this by pointing out that unlike the Greeks, the pre-Columbian South Americans used a base 20 for counting.

Allen claims that Quillacas, located 300 km south of La Paz, was the centre of Atlantis. He claims that there are at least 50 similarities between Quillacas and Plato’s further Atlantis. However, it might be more worthwhile to list the dissimilarities between the two.

This book is now back in print and supported by an extensive website(a).
