Atlantisforschung.de is the name (meaning Atlantis Research) of an important German website(a) launched on October 1st 2010. Extensive preparation by Roland Horn and Bernhard Beier has produced a very valuable portal with a range of comprehensive articles relating to ancient history, with emphasis on the Atlantis mystery.
However, the genesis of the site goes back to as early as 2001 when Beier and Horn decided to establish an all-embracing database relating to Atlantis and ancient civilisations generally. The initial version was online from 2002 until 2004, when the compilers decided to close it down, improve the software and expand the content. This took place over the ensuing six years until the current site was activated in 2010, with its well-deserved outstanding success.
For those, like myself, who only read English, just using your browser’s translator, will reveal a vast store of information and references.
I have to announce the unexpected passing of Bernhard on January 29th, 2021 His contribution to atlantology was inestimable and he leaves a most valuable legacy for generations to come. His colleague and friend Roland Horn will, at least temporarily, take over the maintenance of the site.
In March, 2021 it was announced that new editors were being sought for Atlantisforschung. Applicants will require a command of German and be sympathetic to the objectives of the website. Those interested should contact Roland – https://atlantisforschung.de/index.php?title=Wir_über_uns
