    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 »

Ribero-Meneses, Jorge María (L)

Jorge María Ribero-Meneses (1945- ) is a controversial Spanish philoligist and ribero-menesesprehistorian who has produced a number of books on the ancient history of Spain. Investigators seeking Atlantis in Spain have generally concentrated on the region of Andalusia. However, Ribero-Meneses has directed his attention further north and identified[528] northern Spain, and in particular Cantabria, as the location of Plato’s Atlantis.

He has opted for an underwater mountain in the Cantabrian Sea off the coast of Asturias, known officially as Le Donois Bank and ‘El Cachucho’ to local fishermen, and which is now a protected submarine park. It has been suggested by Ribero-Meneses that Atlantis was once above sea level before being submerged by tectonic movement at the end of the last Ice Age. However, the results of recent geological studies run counter to this theory.

His work is presented on his website which is modestly entitled Iberia the Cradle of Humanity(a). Unfortunately, the site is in Spanish only and much of the material is in a pdf format.
