Lost Outpost of Atlantis 
Lost Outpost of Atlantis was written by Richard Wingate, is now out of print. The book endeavours to offer evidence for the view that the Caribbean and South America were colonised by Atlantis. Wingate travelled to Cuenca in Ecuador on four occasions to study the “Crespi Collection“, named after an Italian missionary, Father Crespi. This remarkable collection of artefacts, fashioned in various materials including gold, silver, copper and stone, seemingly showing Egyptian, Phoenician or Abyssinian influences. None of the 7,000 objects indicate any link with the local Incan or Mayan cultures. Wingate also explores the Ecuadorian capital Quito with an eye for the anomalous. He has an interesting chapter on the Bahamas in general and Bimini in particular. He relates how many tons of dressed granite has been salvaged from sea floor structures, which is somewhat reminiscent of the recycling of the granite facing stones from the Great Pyramid and other ancient constructions. However, independent proof of this local re-use is lacking. The book contains the full text of Plato’s Timaeus and Critias relating to Atlantis. Apparently, this is the only book written by Wingate.
>Wingate published his second book, Atlantis in the Amazon , in June 2011. This volume is all over the place. Although Wingate originally put Atlantis in the Bahamas, he decided to re-title his book as Atlantis in the Amazon and ends up with Atlanteans being involved in nuclear war in ancient India. Along the way we have metallic glue, Easter Island, Indian wooden flying machines and ancient lasers. All very confusing, to say the least.<
