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.

Advertisements

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.

You can check the review in Goodreads.

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

Note: In the above video appears the first edition’s cover of Sailors of Stonehenge. The revised edition has a different one (see the sidebar).

It took me four years to write Sailors of Stonehenge, but it was worth the effort. I had to study prehistory, astronomy, archaeology, mythology, navigation . . . a reward in itself.

When I now contemplate the same starry sky our ancestors looked at with admiration, I feel it familiar.

Besides knowing the true history behind Stonehenge or Atlantis, Sailors of Stonehenge will 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."
