In this follow-up to 1421: The Year China Discovered America, Gavin Menzies investigates the massive eruption of a “supervolcano” in 1500 BC, under the Mediterranean island of Santorini, and finds a connection to one of the most persistent legends of Western civilization. Is it possible that, like ancient Troy, the fabled city of Atlantis actually existed? Analyzing new geologic research, recently unearthed archaeological artifacts, and DNA evidence, Menzies declares that Atlantis did indeed exist—as part of the advanced pre-Grecian Minoan civilization, which extended from the Mediterranean to England, India, and even North America—and constructs a vivid portrait of this lost civilization. Chapters include: Under the Volcano; Return to Phaestos; The Ancient Scholars Speak; Who Were the Minoans? Sailing from Byazantium; A Ship in the Desert; New Worlds for Old; Rich, Exotic Lands; Proud Nineveh; The Key to India? Indian Ocean Trade in the Bronze Age; Spain and La Tauromaquia; The Land of Running Silver; Strange Beasts and Astrolabs; A Metallurgical Mystery; A Heavy Load Indeed; The Spots Marked ‘X’; tons more. 41 chapters in all. Published at $26.99, our price only $18.95! Profusely illustrated! While no exactly our take on Atlantis, this book presents lots of fascinating information on the ancients. A great book for your Atlantis library!
