Atlanticú: el origin de el Tajin, is the title of a book by Roberto Ramírez Rodríguez, director of the Anthropology Department of the University of Vera Cruz. It deals with the history of the famous El Tajin site in Southern Mexico. The oral traditions of the local Totonac people tell of a tall white people who came from an island in the east, destroyed by a powerful earthquake!
Guillermo Dupaix (1750-1817/8) was born in the Duchy of Luxembourg and became a captain in the service of the King of Spain made made three Royal expeditions to Mexico in 1805, 1806 & 1807 to study the monuments of that country. He was accompanied by José Luciano Castañeda a professor of drawing and architecture with the National Museum, whose drawings in the expeditions’ reports were considered more valuable than Dupaix’s text.
Dupaix concluded that the monuments at Monte Alban, El Tajin and Palenque had been built by the citizens of Atlantis.
