I think it’s good every once in a while to include an “ancient civilizations” title in Cygnus, and this is a good one. It’s fascinating and fun and I think it’s relevant with the Stonehenge exhibition now on at the British Museum. Who we are now is closely related to what humanity achieved in the past. There are all these incredible buildings around the world whose complexity and technical sophistication don’t fit the conventional timeline. So when did Atlantean civilization start and what were its ebbs and flows? I find it exciting to consider that Atlantean survivors then went on to found other civilizations elsewhere on the planet, from Gobekli Tepe to the Mayas and from Egypt to the Druids in the British Isles. The book is full of colour photos, drawings, charts and maps and it’s an easy read. Definitely a book to invest in if you enjoy this kind of history.
