Sometimes one wishes Childress would be more critical when he says things like (paraphrasing) "Atlantis is as good a reason as any for crop circles" or "Jesus and Mary took a boat trip to England after he died." The whole alternative Jesus fad has come back in recent years, but most serious students discovered how silly it is (see The Historical Jesus: Ancient Evidence for the Life of Christ and The Case for the Real Jesus: A Journalist Investigates Current Attacks on the Identity of Christ). Though the idea of Jesus visiting Britain during his "missing" years prior to his ministry is interesting (see Did Jesus Come to Britain?). But over all, one has to give him credit for compiling this series and bringing together so much work. Some ideas, like pre-Columbus diffusion to America are becoming more mainstream and catastrophes caused by impact events have become accepted. I wonder how many scholars and academics read these books secretly, wishing they could talk and research them freely without condemnation? You'd be surprised what a joke "academic freedom" really can be. This series is a good place for those interested in the ancient world to start. Just keep your thinking cap on. This particular one is sort of a companion to Lost Cities of Ancient Lemuria and the Pacific (The Lost City Series). Lemuria, Atlantis' counterpart in the Pacific, is understudied, yet has as much, if not more, potential than the Atlantis idea.
But it's not a dry tome of facts, dates, and photos: it is also the exciting tale of Mr. Childress' travels to remote and often very dangerous places to see the sites he tells about. Share his adventures! Like all his Lost Cities... books, this one will keep you turning the pages.
