Pierre Carnac (1921-2008) was the pen name of Professor Doru Todericiu, a Romanian who has written extensively on prehistory. He retired to Normandy in France where he continued writing until his death. He has tackled subjects such as Vikings and Templars in America, early Pacific migration as well as ancient science and symbolism. In 1971 Carnac explored the Bimini Stones with Dimitri Rebikoff and concluded that they were remnants of Plato’s lost civilisation. He published a book on Bimini in 1973. However, three decades were to pass before he had published another work, also in French, L’Atlantide, Autopsie d’un Mythe, dealing exclusively with Atlantis. In it he invokes the Egyptian Book of the Dead to demonstrate that a meteorite impact in the Atlantic destroyed Atlantis, echoing the work of Otto Muck. The attached map by Carnac shows his preferred location for Atlantis.
Dimitri Rebikoff (1921-1997) was born in Paris of Russian parents. His grandfather, Vassily, had helped to develop the Czar’s air force and his father was an attaché at the Paris embassy and later murdered in Prague by the KGB. During the Second World War Dimitri was forced to work in Germany.
After the war, he returned to Paris and studied at the Sorbonne and in 1959 moved to the United States, where he developed his career as an oceanographer and engineer. He has many inventions to his credit including an underwater camera and the Pegasus underwater platform. He has written a number of books on underwater exploration and photography that have been published in French and German as well as English.
This feature is 300 feet wide and 1600 feet long and has been the subject of controversy since its discovery. A number of writers have attempted, unsuccessfully, to link this strange structure with Atlantis. Rebikoff’s conclusion was that the Bimini Road is some form of ancient harbour works.
