Andrew Collins returns to Veritas with an in-depth investigation of the mounting evidence that Atlantis was located in the Bahamas and Caribbean, near Cuba in particular
* Explains how Atlantis was destroyed by a comet, the same comet that formed the mysterious Carolina Bays
* Reveals evidence of complex urban ruins off the coasts of Cuba and the Bahamas
* Shows how pre-Columbian mariners visited the Caribbean and brought back stories of Atlantis's destruction
* Compares Plato's account with ancient legends from the indigenous people of North and South America, such as the Maya, the Quiche, and the Yuchi of Oklahoma
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 Quiché of Peru, the Yuchi
of Oklahoma, the islanders of the Antilles, and the native peoples of Brazil.
The author explains how the comet that destroyed Atlantis in the Caribbean was
the same comet that formed the mysterious and numerous elliptical depressions,
known as the Carolina Bays, found across the mid-Atlantic United States. He
reveals evidence of sunken ruins off the coasts of both Cuba and the Bahamas,
ancient complexes spanning more than 10 acres that clearly suggest urban
development and meticulously planned road systems.
Revealing the identity of Plato's "opposite continent"
as ancient America, Collins argues that Plato's story was first carried back
to the Mediterranean world by trans-Atlantic mariners, such as the Phoenicians
and Carthaginians, as early as the first millennium BC. He offers additional
ancient trans-Atlantis trade evidence from Egyptian mummies, Roman shipwrecks
in the Western Atlantic, and the African features of giant stone heads in
Mexico. Piecing together the final days of Atlantis and the wildfires,
earthquakes, tsunamis, days of darkness, and advancement of ice sheets that
followed the ancient comet's impact, Collins establishes not only that
Atlantis did indeed exist but also that remnants of it survive today, most
obviously in Cuba, Atlantis's original central island.

Collins is a popular writer of history, archaeology, and science. For over
30 years he has explored the relationship between archaic religious beliefs
and the cosmos, examining the origins of human civilization, the development
of technology and the inspirations behind magic and religion. His
discoveries have led to several thought-provoking books that challenge the
