Ignatius Donnelly's Atlantis, and Antillia


I'm not sure how much interest this would raise, but I figure it come in handy for people whose campaigns deal with Atlantis/Mu/Lemuria...here's Ignatius Donnelly's Atlantis: the Antediluvian World online! It might especially be useful as it's quite likely REH saw this work (I know Lovecraft was familiar with it). http://www.sacred-texts.com/atl/ataw/

Antillia: http://www.returntoatlantis.com/retc/antilles.html
Was looking for something else and saw this old thread. I was watching a show on the Discovery-Science channel a couple weeks ago about archaeological finds & seismic studies, and the archaeologist who discovered this temple in Crete (a hundred years ago) kept studying the city vs. another island in the Meditteranean which had a city buried by volcanic ash (island's an inactive volcano). Anyways, his and subsequent findings led archaeologists to believe that both communities were linked, a peaceful, bull-worshipping civilization destroyed by 1) volcano destroying naval center, and 2)Greek conquest 75 years after.

The point is, they believed this pre-greek civilization was what became known as Atlantis. It's got the kinda feel as author Stephen Lawhead's Merlin trilogy (I think the books are cheesy, but after dismissing the Atlantean feel in them I recognized the bull worship, etc, in this tv show).

Just an fyi.
