The astonishing true story of Atlantis

In 1500 BC a supervolcano beneath the Greek island of Santorini exploded in a near-apocalyptic eruption. Buried beneath the rubble and waves was the world’s most remarkable lost civilization.

New York Times bestselling historian Gavin Menzies presents newly uncovered evidence revealing, conclusively, that “the lost city of Atlantis” was not only real but also at the heart of a highly advanced global empire that reached the shores of America before being violently wiped from the earth.

For three millennia the legend of Atlantis has gripped the imaginations of explorers, philosophers, occultists, treasure hunters, historians, and archaeologists. Until now it has remained shrouded in myth. Yet, like ancient Troy, is it possible that this fabled city actually existed? If so, what happened to it, and what are its secrets? The fascinating reality of Atlantis’ epic glory and destruction are uncovered, finally, in these pages in thrilling detail.

Meticulously analyzing exciting new geologic research, recently unearthed archaeological artifacts, and cutting-edge DNA evidence, Menzies has made a jaw-dropping discovery: Atlantis truly did exist and was part of the incredibly advanced Minoan civilization that extended from its Mediterranean base to England, India, and even America. In The Lost Empire of Atlantis, he constructs a vivid portrait of this legendary civilization and shares his remarkable findings.

As riveting as an Indiana Jones adventure, The Lost Empire of Atlantis is a revolutionary work of popular history that will forever change our understanding of the past.

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Les | 1/31/2014

    " Menzies has done it again. 'Th Lost Empire of Atlantis' is filled with speculation taken as fact as he had done with his previous books on pseudo archaeology. He may have been in the Royal Navy (indicted for a ship collision during his service) but he knows nothing about ancient seafaring, navigation, ship building, or trade. His speculation about the Minoans is also laughably wrong. Buried in his exploration of the ancient world is some good hard facts but the reader would be better served reading a more authoritative work. "

    " Gavin Menzies is an author, sailor, journalist, lecturer and historian and he makes his case with solid evidence that Atlantis did truly exist. For an excellent review click on the book icon at upper left. "

    " Excellent, this work in tandem with Manly Hall's lecture series on Atlantis really opens deep thoughts and carries history back several centuries. "

    " Menzie's theories are compelling. This is not stuff that was covered in any of my Greek archaeology classes, but it was also written after I was done with school! I'm somewhat loathe to trust him as he is not an archaeologist himself, and would like to read some of his sources. "
