Sixth paragraph, you wrote "from this" twice. This reminds me, over the winter I read Sumathi Ramaswamy's Lost Land of Lemuria, which details the history of the myth, including Churchward's adaptation. I bring this up because, incidentally, the author presents an interesting footnote that I don't think you've mentioned before: Apparently, in the mid-twentieth century, a woman named Gertrude Norris Meeker claimed to have been Givernor-General of a "Principality" she called "Atlantis Kaj Lemuria". Phoney orders of knighthood continue to exist as well, and these crappy orders are bestowed by those officials who bestow them on themselves. Holders of such crappy titles claim to have privileged "bloodlines" until you do an ancestry. There is a world of difference between some phoney bestower of knighthoods and a genuine historian.

I have now published my new book, Joining The Dots, which offers a fresh look at the Atlantis mystery. I have addressed the critical questions of when, where and who, using Plato's own words, tempered with some critical thinking and a modicum of common sense.

He claimed to have ancient documents describing the destruction of Mu and insisted that the Azores were a remnant of Atlantis. Neither the artefacts nor Paul Schliemann ever materialised, in fact, an investigation revealed that Heinrich did not have a grandson named Paul.
Additionally, he claimed to have arrived at the solution of the Atlantis mystery after studying the Mayan Troano Codex in the British Museum. Unfortunately, the Troano Codex was housed in a museum in Madrid where it still resides. A further mistake by Paul was to claim that his grandfather referred to the Lion Gate at Mycenae on Crete , when in fact it was situated on mainland Greece. These errors were compounded by his reference to Atlantean coins which is completely anachronistic as coinage only came into use in Lydia around the time of Solon.
Furthermore, Heinrich actively sought publicity and it would have been completely out of character for him not to have claimed the glory for himself of having discovered Atlantis.
In spite of all of this, the story was widely quoted and is still accepted as reliable by some writers. The full story is now available on the Internet a. Clearly this was an attempt to extend the hoax, but apparently was not spotted by The Mail, considering the amount of space that they allocated to the article as well as the accompanying images.

Madrid Codex (Maya)
The Madrid Codex was separated into two parts very early on in its European history, and thus traveled different paths in Europe until The Troano comprises pages , and the Cortesianus pages , of the Madrid. Since pages 77 and 78 were for some reason always upside-down within the codex, page 78 might be thought of as coming before page Pertinent copies and facsimiles include:. His chromolithographic rendition of the Troano is included in this work.
However, the original is not on display due to its fragility; an accurate reproduction is displayed in its stead. The Codex was made from a long strip of amate paper that was folded up accordion-style. This paper was then coated with a thin layer of fine stucco , which was used as the painting surface. It takes its name from Juan Tro y Ortolano.
