    September 2023. Hi Atlantipedes, At present I am in Sardinia for a short visit. Later we move to Sicily and Malta. The trip is purely vacational. Unfortunately, I am writing this in a dreadful apartment, sitting on a bed, with access to just one useable socket and a small Notebook. Consequently, I possibly will not […]Read More »

    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.Read More »

Carlotto, Mark

Mark Carlotto is a keen supporter of Charles Hapgood‘s theory of crustal displacement. His endorsement is outlined in his 2018 book, Before Atlantis [1600] and a supportive website(a). His focus is concentrated on the original alignment of ancient sites that appear to consistently point to different locations for the North Pole in ancient times suggesting a crustal displacement a la Hapgood, Flem-Ath and others. Carlotto offers a new Pole Shift theory(b).

In a separate paper, Carlotto offers a more focused study that concentrates on antediluvian cities in Mesopotamia that appear to be aligned with different locations held by the North Pole in earlier times. Based on Hapgood’s theory of crustal displacement, Carlotto concluded that these cities should be dated much earlier than generally accepted! (e)

Moving on to Egypt, he contends in a 2021 paper that the Sphinx may have been part of a lunar temple aligned with the rising of a full moon!(f)

For me, Carlotto’s credibility took a dive when he unexpectedly began a discussion(c) on the ‘Face’ on Mars! It is interesting that Carlotto echoes Graham Hancock‘s idea of a very ancient global civilisation on Earth as well as Mars [2003].

 “Before Atlantis proposes that our current technological civilization was preceded by a series of earlier civilizations stretching back more than 100,000 years. Preliminary findings presented here lead to the obvious question of whether an earlier civilization from Earth might have constructed the Face and other structures on Mars long ago”.

Carlotto touches on the subject of Atlantis(d) including the suggestion of a Mesoamerican and Caribbean location. He comments on the Plain of Atlantis – “It is interesting to note that 2000 x 3000 stadia = 229 x 344 miles is roughly the size of the Yucatan Peninsula”!
