Jackson Judge is from Indiana in the USA. He describes himself as a biblical archaeologist who is convinced that the ruined city of Portsmouth, Ohio is the location of Atlantis. He claims that the survey of these ancient ruins as published by the Smithsonian Institute’s Ancient Monuments of the Mississippi Valley (1847/8) is an exact match for the Citadel of Poseidon described by Plato.
Described as a ‘maverick’, Judge has made a number of revolutionary, if not bizarre claims in his book such as linking Atlantis with Mars. Judge had a website, now gone, that had a modest little introduction that said: “Welcome to The United States of Atlantis: USAtlantis.com. The Copy Righted USAtlantis DataBase is worth millions, possibly billions, and cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to generate over the course of 24 years. It nearly cost Jackson his life on several occasions”!
