Did Atlantis lay in England?

By E.J. de Meester.

Not only a part of the Odyssey could be moved to the British isles; legendary Atlantis may have existed there too. Countless theories have been invented about Atlantis. Most popular is perhaps the theory that Atlantis was the little volcanic island of Thera or Santorini, which perished during the reign of queen Hatshepsut (?) in a great catastrophe. The weak point of the theory is that Thera is not outside the Pillars of Hercules (the Strait of Gibraltar). According to the supporters of this theory, Atlantis did not perish 9000 but 900 years ago, counting from the time of Solon (600 BC). It is very likely that all numbers in Plato's Atlantis story are ten times too high.
