cover-madrid-is-atlantis“I confess that for a long time I considered all this of the Dynasties and Atlantis as a pure fable, until the day when, more instructed in the Eastern languages, I could judge that all these legends must be, after all, only the development of a Great Truth.”

–Atanasio Kircher

In Sailors of Stonehenge, I explained that the Megalith Builders of Western Europe were the legendary Atlanteans.

In Voyage Zero, I described how they spawned civilization all over the world.

In this book, Madrid is Atlantis, I return to the origin of my research, to the place where it was born, to prove that on the same soil as Madrid, more than five thousand years ago, was Atlantis.

As a reader, I hate when I feel pressurized to buy a book, and distrust of those authors that advertise themselves everywhere. Now, as a writer, I realize how difficult it is to talk about my book without falling into the same traps I hate.

Fortunately,  Sailors of Stonehenge has received a review so wonderful that I wanted to share it with the readers of this blog, because it was written by someone who dares to sign it with her credentials: an expert in Classical mythology writing a thesis on Plato’s life.

And, in case you don’t know, Plato was the philosopher who, in his dialogues Timaeus and Critias, said and repeated that Atlantis existed (although even his disciples, Aristotle included, doubted it). I humbly believe that, in Sailors of Stonehenge, I prove Plato was not lying.

We’ll have to wait to see if when I receive the predictable terrible critics I dare also to advertise them in this blog  😉

It has taken me four years to write Sailors of Stonehenge, but it was worth the effort. I had to study prehistory, astronomy, archaeology, mythology, navigation… and to gain some knowledge about all these matters has been a reward in itself.

When I now contemplate the same starry sky our ancestors looked at with admiration, I feel it is a familiar landscape, as if suddenly I could bridge the millennia that separate us. And you too can have now a similar feeling after reading Sailors of Stonehenge, because you too will learn about all these subjects, regardless of whether or not you agree with the theories I put forward in it.

I wanted to include plenty of pictures and figures to make reading it more pleasant, and so I ended up inserting almost one illustration per page. I also chose a slightly larger format than the typical 9×6 inches to make it more roomy, and decided (against the advice of editors), to include footnotes wherever I thought it was necessary to clarify a point or to give additional information. My only purpose was to not lose any reader, and now you can tell me if I succeeded or failed.

If you think this is an interesting book, please lend it, or let others know about it. (Btw, I’d appreciate if you could stop by the Amazon page and leave a comment.) Thanks for helping, and I hope you’ll enjoy it!

I also published it in Spanish, in case you prefer this option, as Marineros de piedra, signed with my full name (José Manuel Gómez Vega).

Just a warning note: Besides knowing the true history behind Stonehenge or Atlantis, Sailors of Stonehenge may change all your preconceived ideas about human history.


"Manuel Vega has written an extraordinary book. He has turned history upside down. I strongly recommend this book."
–Gavin Menzies, author of 1421 and The Lost Empire of Atlantis
