In this interview Episode I sit down and chat with the author Mark Adams about his book, “Meet me in Atlantis”. We talk about his experiences and what he learnt about Plato’s tale of the lost city of Atlantis. He also talks about the many people he met during his research for the book and where he also tells their stories.
Over on Patroen I had a little fun with the latest bonus episode looking at the connections between the tale of Atlantis to the Bronze Age civilisation of the Minoans. I also look into the areas that don’t support these connections, other areas that have been put forward, as well as the view this was all Plato’s invention, with no historical context.
Communities from the Aegean, including the Minoans and Mycenaeans, conducted trade in Egypt. Dr. Uroš Matić, Austrian Academy of Sciences, Austrian Archaeological Institute, joins the show to discuss.

Today on the Etruscan Brontoscopic Calendar:
[Saturday] If it thunders today, it portends the succession of a great ruler.
[Sunday] If it thunders today, it portends a shortage of crops due to rainy weather.
