The legend of Atlantis is one of the most intriguing mysteries of all time. Disproving many well-known Atlantis theories and providing a new hypothesis, the evidence for which continues to build, Andrew Collins shows that what Plato recounts is the memory of a major cataclysm at the end of the last Ice Age 13,000 years ago, when a comet devastated the island of Cuba and submerged part of the Bahaman landmass in the Caribbean. He parallels Plato's account with corroborating ancient myths and legends from the indigenous people of North and South America, such as the Maya of Mesoamerica, the Quiche of Peru, the Yuchi of Oklahoma, the islanders of the Antilles, and the native peoples of Brazil.
Andrew Collins has been investigating the idea of advanced civilizations in prehistory since 1979. He is the co-discoverer of a massive cave complex beneath the Giza plateau, now known as "Collins' Caves." The author of From the Ashes of Angels, Gods of Eden, The Cygnus Mystery, and Gobekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods, he lives in Essex, England.
