    Atlantipedia will be wound down in 2023. After nearly twenty years compiling Atlantipedia on my own, and as I am now approaching my 80th birthday, I have decided to cut back on the time I dedicate to developing this website. An orderly conclusion rather than an enforced one is always preferable before the Grim Reaper […]Read More »

de Prorok, Count Byron Khun

Count Byron Khun de Prorok (1896-1954) has been variously described an American with a Polish title or as a Pole married to an American. He was originally a conventional archaeologist having worked on the site of Carthage. He then developed into an adventurous deProrokexplorer in the early 1920’s and 1930’s whose escapades would have been worthy of Indiana Jones.

Perhaps his most famous achievement was the discovery of the tomb of the legendary Berber queen, Tin Hinan. However, this claim did not stand up to closer scrutiny as James Bramwell revealed in his Lost Atlantis[195.115].   

Khun de Prorock became convinced that Atlantis had a North African origin, specifically on the Hoggar Plateau(c).

He was author of a number of books recounting his experiences, including Digging for Lost African Gods, now available online(a).

His ‘discoveries’ were not given any serious consideration by orthodox archaeologists. He died unexpectedly in the mid-1950’s according to a report in the November/December 1958 edition of SykesAtlantis journal.

The Wikipedia account of deProrok’s life is also worth a read(b).
