Dr. Mark Carlotto: Beyond Atlantis, Vestiges of the World’s Lost Civilizations
In Before Atlantis, Mark Carlotto considers the idea that Atlantis was as much a time as a place, presenting evidence that the world’s most enigmatic archaeological sites could be much older than we think. The journey continues in Beyond Atlantis where he explores the vestiges of the world’s lost civilizations.
Continuing research into the origin of the world’s oldest civilizations has found a growing number of ancient sites oriented in unknown directions. However, by changing the frame of reference, changing the location of the North Pole, the orientations of these sites are easily explained.
Charles Hapgood’s theory of earth crustal displacements and pole shifts is considered fringe science, or worse, pseudo-science by the academic community. But if Hapgood is wrong why does his theory explain the alignment of hundreds of sites across the world that have no other explanation?
Beyond Atlantis presents the extraordinary evidence that science demands to support the extraordinary claim that our civilization is not the first, but only the latest chapter in a vast human history stretching back hundreds of thousand years.
Mark Carlotto is an engineer, scientist, and author with almost forty years of experience in satellite imaging, remote sensing, image processing, and pattern recognition. He received a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1981 and has written over one hundred technical papers and seven books. Outside of his occupation as an engineer in the aerospace industry, his journey as an independent scientist has taken him to Mars and back again by way of planetary mysteries, UFOs, local history, and most recently, ancient origins and archaeology.
