>Dean Clarke is the American webmaster of the extensive Atlantisite(a), billed as the New Atlantean Research Journal and intended as a successor to Egerton Sykes‘ print journals Atlantean Research & Atlantis (1948-1976). Clarke publishes under the modest title of ‘world authority on Atlantis’, without telling anyone who awarded him this epithet. Perhaps best described in paraphrased NASA-speak as ‘the ego has landed’.
The site is apparently focused on supporting an Atlantic location for Atlantis, although the first paper that he published located Atlantis in France(c)! He also includes a map, which I find totally confusing!
Atlantisite contains a valuable archive of articles published by Sykes from the 1950’s until 1976(d).<
In 2020, Clarke published, Atlantis – Ancient Maritime Culture , which he claims is the culmination of 45 years of Atlantis research. This expensive Kindle book has the equivalent of nearly 500 pages. It has very few paragraph breaks, which is bad enough, but it is compounded by a rambling style, which, for me, made it unreadable. A ‘look inside’(b) on the Amazon website will confirm my view.
He claims in the book’s promotional blurb to have new information regarding Atlantis from a “rare Codex lost during the French Revolution called ‘Codex Atlanteanus’ by Labretagne who was a fairly famous Poet and Atlantis Scholar in the 1500’s AD.” No record exists of this document or its author, whose name just means ‘Brittany’! I seem to detect a whiff of rodent here.
Clarke subsequently published two more books, Radiant Bull of Ancient France & Esoteric Mysteries of Atlantis. Both are written in the same boring turgid style without paragraph breaks.
