Description

In 2008 historian Gavin Menzies launched himself on a quest that would reveal the truth behind the mystery of Atlantis and its destruction. Through an examination of exciting new documentary and academic research, metallurgy, ancient shipbuilding and navigation techniques, archaeological artifacts, and cutting-edge DNA evidence, Menzies painstakingly uncovered a trading empire that spanned from the Mediterranean, to the Great Lakes in North America, to Kerala in India. And in doing so he finally explains the incredible reality behind the legendary civilization described by Plato, as well as its violent disappearance. Reading like a real-life Indiana Jones adventure, The Lost Empire of Atlantis is epic, iconoclastic popular history with astonishing implications.
