An island civilization, home to a forgotten race, destroyed in one terrible day and night - lost forever beneath the waves of a merciless ocean. Nearly all of us are familiar with the story of Atlantis, and yet how much do we truly know? In this work, the authors explore the Egyptian roots of Plato's famous narrative, and examine the strange similarities between Atlantis and worldwide creation mythologies. A fresh and unique look at an ancient enigma, the book is essential for anyone interested in the mystery of Atlantis, layman and scholar alike. With an appendix on Egyptian mythology and its connection to Plato's Atlantis by renowned musicologist Ernest G. McClain.
