    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 »

Clarke, Dean

Dean Clarke is the American webmaster of the on-line only(a), New Atlantean Research Journal, which is a successor to the print journal Atlantean Research (1948-1986). Clarke publishes under the modest title of ‘world authority on Atlantis’, without telling anyone who awarded him this epithet. Perhaps in paraphrased NASAspeak ‘the ego has landed’. The site is dedicated to exclusively supporting an Atlantic location for Atlantis. He also includes a map, which I find totally inexplicable!

In 2020, Clarke published, Atlantis – Ancient Maritime Culture [1726], which he claims is the culmination of 45 years of Atlantis research. This expensive Kindle book has the equivalent of nearly 750 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.<
