This remarkable study is the culmination of thirty years of research into the possibility that the continent we know today as South America is really the ancient continent of Atlantis. Assembling a wide range of evidence, the author concludes that the fabled lost city of Atlantis, as described by Plato, may have existed on the Altiplano in Bolivia. Jim Allen identifies a site complete with a rectangular plain, concentric rings of land and water channels, just as Plato described it.
The true history of this remote, beautiful and fascinating region was lost as a result of the Spanish Conquest when the continent was renamed America. Indeed the first accounts of Inca history by Spanish writers of the period, later suppressed by the authorities and only recently made public, confirm that America was originally known as Atlantis.
Now, for the first time, Jim Allen s research presents a theory of Atlantis. His book is based on full documentation of a site that corresponds to Plato s detailed description, including the level rectangular plain; the mysterious metal orichalcum; red, black and white stones; hot and cold springs; the five pairs of twin sons; and a local legend of a city sunk by earthquakes, leaving a site one can visit today.
