The seismic evidence that I present to support this sudden destruction includes frightening facts about a succession of huge disasters that have afflicted south-west Iberia every 1, to 2, years. It was at least as big as the one in Japan two years ago, but possibly ten times stronger, with towering tsunamis up to feet high.
Vincent and the damage was colossal. The quake reverberated over an area of nearly 1. More pertinent was that a kilometre diameter area of the seabed sank by some 30 metres. Perhaps more pertinent still was the fact mentioned earlier, that the quake was far from an isolated incident. It had been caused by the notorious fault line which delineates the African and Eurasian plates. Geological research on the seabed has proved that events of a similar or greater magnitude have occurred regularly in the past and there was particular bad one around 11, years ago, the exact time given by Plato for the destruction of Atlantis.
It explains why despite ideal conditions for a civilisation to have flourished, few records exist. It seems fair to say that they may well have done so, but perished under huge alluvial deposits or disappeared on land now at the bottom of the sea. My theory is that the greater part of Atlantis, the huge southern plain described by Plato, now forms the seabed to the south of the coast in front of south-west Iberia and to the north of Morocco. At that time it would all have been very fertile and the narrow strait separating it from Gibraltar and Spain would have extended much further into the Atlantic and probably been even narrower than today.

It is clear from the bathymetric chart of the sea-floor that the area in front of the Algarve was once a large plain. It slopes very gradually, only a few metres or so per kilometre, but it is broken into three successive areas by what would appear to be ancient cliffs where the levels suddenly plunge by significant amounts. These sharp differences in levels could have been caused by combination of land suddenly sinking due to seismic events and the rise in sea-levels caused by the melting of ice-age glaciers. I know of at least one site of unidentified ruins which were exposed on the sea-floor when the ocean withdrew immediately before the tsunami of struck.
Ancient river-beds are also clearly visible on the chart where many of the current rivers once extended as far as the extremity of the submerged plain, evidence that the whole area was once above water. This rules out any tropical zone such as off the coast of central Africa, whereas South West Iberia has a bountiful crop every year. Plato also wrote that Atlantis had a range of mountains immediately north of the great plain and the capital city. He indicates these mountains survived the disaster, although greatly diminished in size and number.
They still exist today, starting inland immediately behind the remaining narrow coastal plain in the Algarve and extending eastwards across into Spain. After identifying that the region must be the Atlantis that Plato described, I searched the remaining countryside for any indications of sites of inland cities.
Against all odds I found the actual site of the famous small capital that was described by Plato with such a surprising amount of very specific detail it is as though he wanted to make sure it could be identified. This site matches so many of those elements it is surely globally unique and quite beyond coincidence. It is connected to the sea by a tidal waterway of nine and a quarter kilometres, which is the exact distance specified; it is built on a small hill, itself on a small plain and the diameter of the hill, less than a kilometre, is still much as Plato indicated; it would have been only a couple of kilometres from the vast agricultural plain; the unusual combination of red, black and white stone could all have been quarried from this one small hill as detailed by Plato and used to build the city; remnants of the surrounding earth embankments, each originally separated by a ring of seawater, are in the correct positions on the west side.
The outer one overlooks the ancient harbour, just as Plato specified. It was still a harbour in Phoenician and Roman times. You can see touch and verify them. It all represents a unique geological and geographical template. Now, there only remains that big question mark. Was Plato reporting accurate facts about a lost civilisation or did he make up the story to achieve other ends?
I think there is enough evidence to suggest Plato was certainly reporting a kernel of truth. The very fact that I think I have now established that Plato was talking about an exact area that once existed and had largely disappeared many thousands of years before his era, is strong proof in itself.
How could he have known about it unless he had access to privileged information? So, what next? There is much more in the book than briefly described here, including detail on the sprawling island empire stretching all the way to the Bahamas and Cuba. If he was correct, apart from the ruins I know of, the whole sunken area would have been peppered with cities and ports.
Exploration will be fairly easy with modern equipment as the area is shallow, only slopes a few metres per kilometer and is flat. Together with other discoveries now being made in Anatolia and the Far East, the next few years could prove very interesting with the possibility of revelations that will force a complete re-assessment of human civilised history.

This is the first book I have read on the subject. Will most likely be the last until concrete proof of its existence and location is confirmed. That is not to say that this book should not be read.
My background won't let me read any more suppositional books on Atlantis.
The author uses Plato's 'Timaeus', a Socratic dialogue in which Socrates asks Timaeus, Critias and Hermon to relate stories of Athens' interactions with other states as one so Atlantis has enchanted and mystified many for ages. The author uses Plato's 'Timaeus', a Socratic dialogue in which Socrates asks Timaeus, Critias and Hermon to relate stories of Athens' interactions with other states as one source for his own theory as to the location of Atlantis.
In these accounts it is mentioned that the Egyptians knew of the story of Atlantis. Plato's curiosity was piqued. Another more concrete source the author utilizes as proof of the location of the fabled civilization are the geographic characteristics of the region near his residence. He presents an intriguing case in which he compares the land formations he can actually see and stand on with the information Plato provides. I found how the author determined the supposed location of Atlantis interesting and plausible but his ideas of Altantian society seemed to be a bit much.
I have purposefully omitted the author's conclusions. Why spoil it? Another reason I enjoyed the majority of the text was we have visited the area and it is one of our favorite places to visit. Wish I had read the book before our visit. The local people are welcoming and generous. A trait handed down from Atlantis? View 2 comments. Jan 17, Jason rated it liked it Shelves: read-in This is the first full length book I've read discussing Atlantis and it's possible location, so I'm not an expert on the subject.
I do plan to read Plato's work on the subject one day. If you are relatively new to the subject then this is a very good place to start. Peter Daughtrey discusses Plato at length, he also looks into the previously suggested locations as he proves beyond doubt just how wrong those locations are Peter's location though meets 60 of Plato's descriptions, which is impressive, but at times he does seem to be inventive when fitting in his location. He does have quite a good imagination, his many years experience help him to see how it fits in, unfortunately in the book it's not as convincing.
Until somebody finds some hard evidence then it's only just a theory, the upside is that his location for Atlantis means exploration in the future is possible, so I'll be keeping my eye out for news of any discoveries. My issue with this book is the last few chapters, after he has put his case forward for where Atlantis was he then continues the book describing Atlantis, their language, what they looked like and their technology.
Maybe they had mastered electricity, genetics and atomic weapons, if just feels like the book slips away from reality for a while and never comes back. Still it was an interesting read and I found how he found new clues from Plato fascinating Jul 15, David Beers rated it really liked it. The information in this book is wonderful, even if the conclusions and level of certainty go to far. When challenging the conventional historical record, it pays to be conservative in the conclusion drawing department, so as not to draw attention away from the hard evidence.
The author fails in this respect, but the book is well written, and presents a lot of interesting information. There's not anything that can be specifically debunked or proven false, so don't think this is a wing nut book - The information in this book is wonderful, even if the conclusions and level of certainty go to far. There's not anything that can be specifically debunked or proven false, so don't think this is a wing nut book - the author would simply benefit from qualifiers on his statements such as "it appears that Even some of the more far-fetched stuff, like the information about haplogroup X the tall, red- bearded, pale skinned ancient peoples who left their genetic and cultural evidence almost everywhere on the globe is actually quite factual - I recommend googling "haplogroup X" to see for yourself.
This is in some ways a modern update to Ignatious Loyola Donnelley's classic "Atlantis and the Antediluvian World," in that it compares genetics, language, and culture to show that there is good evidence for a common ancestral lineage between the American continents and Europe. All in all I would recommend this book to anyone interested in ancient man, Atlantis, etc etc, with the previously mentioned disclaimer regarding certainty and conclusion-drawing.
Mar 10, Jay rated it liked it. If I recall correctly, and I might not, this book discussed the possible locations of Atlantis, but then went down the "Chariots of the Gods? I was pleased to see this new Atlantis release, "Atlantis and the Silver City" seemed to be aimed more at the archaeological question of where Atlantis was, and based mostly on an ex I was probably in Junior High when I found a new paperback in the local Waldenbooks - "Atlantis Rising" by Brad Steiger. I was pleased to see this new Atlantis release, "Atlantis and the Silver City" seemed to be aimed more at the archaeological question of where Atlantis was, and based mostly on an extensive description from Plato.
The author comes up with a number of "clues" from Plato that he can interpret into locales in and near the southwestern Iberian peninsula, including, surprisingly enough, his new hometown. You can feel the author's breathless excitement as he describes his discoveries. As can be expected, this isn't scholarship, or research, as much as conjecture, but he tells a good story. He does slip in the last third of the book into wild conjecture concerning numerous ancient redhead leaders!
He even conjectures that a design of circles with a line through it imply the ancients knew the double helix of DNA, when it looks like a nice Celtic design that could be a pearl necklace. I hadn't read this kind of stuff in more than 30 years, yet it seemed quite repetitive, outside of the newer DNA research he mentions.
One surpising bit, the author said he had done most of his research and then checked the internet and found a website that pretty much duplicated his results. Word to the wise, check the internet first!

Mar 04, Angie rated it liked it Shelves: nonfiction , ebooks , adult-books. He basis his hypothesis on the writings of Plato that describe Atlantis and its location. He uses dozens of points from Plato to "proof" that Atlantis once existed in Iberia. His research and claims are extensive and his proof seems pretty plausible. However, there isn't a whole lot of evidence other than his conjecture to prove his hypothesis. The book is a lot of conjecture and hopeful thinking. Everything he says seems plausible and intriguing. I have no reason to believe it didn't just as I have no proof that it did.
Daughtrey's arguments on the location are pretty extensive and interesting. They do make you think and seem entirely possible. Towards the end of the book he brings up a bunch of other things that I think seem less plausible. He tries to tie instances of red-heads, pyramids and the DNA symbol around the world to the migration of the Atlantian people.
This book is full of interesting ideas about the beginnings of mankind. It would be really interesting if they were true. Maybe one day archaeological evidence will support Daughtrey's claims. I receive a copy of this book from the publishers on Netgalley. Feb 05, Roger Hardy rated it really liked it. I thoroughly enjoyed this book; it knocks on the head most of the theories on the location of Atlantis and proposes a solution that, once explained, is actually really obvious. Amazing that academia has struggled for centuries to locate the lost civilisation. The sad part is that we may never recover enough to confirm the hypothesis or otherwise but let's live in hope.
It's out there somewhere. This book is well-written with an easy, narrative style and it has been carefully researched over years I thoroughly enjoyed this book; it knocks on the head most of the theories on the location of Atlantis and proposes a solution that, once explained, is actually really obvious. This book is well-written with an easy, narrative style and it has been carefully researched over years. It does not purport to be a scholarly treatise although the extensive references show how much care and background research has been done and I am sure that academics will have fun nit-picking but they'd be missing the point and that point is this: it is a book of ideas, and they are good ideas, original and mostly quite convincing.
Atlantis Silver City by Peter Daughtrey, Hardcover
However, like all good mysteries, it raises as many questions as it answers. I hope that some popular archaeologist in snorkel and wetsuit takes up the challenge to delve deeper into Peter's ideas because I'm sure there's a career in it! Fascinating reading I wonder what the future holds re: continued archaeological study into this study of our more distant past.
