The purpose of this brief work is to give a fast and simple overview of the hypothesis, investigations, contributions and findings related to Atlantis carried out by the author over the last two decades, no matter the level of expertise, focusing particularly on those issues that have been handled – and only briefly explained- by the author in the fascinating documentary, Atlantis Discovered, produced by James Francis Cameron, Yaron Niski y Felix Golubev, and directed by the Canadian award winning filmmaker Simcha Jacobovici for National Geographic.
In this regard, I hope this book serves as a complement to improve data and details that could not be appreciated when watching the documentary, for obvious production reasons. No documentary, no matter how lengthy is, can gather all the details of a research, let alone when the author’s participation is only partial, having to share it with some other experts who proposed different hypotheses related to the location of Atlantis in the Mediterranean and Azores area. Two hours are not enough, nor would be three or four more hours, to sum up, albeit briefly, several hypotheses. At least a series of ten lengthy chapters would be required to develop more fully the author’s investigations about Atlantis.
For these reasons, among other ones, but specially due to the high level of complexity (both linguistic and interpretative) that results from underwater works, everything related

Journal of Egyptology”;
The same year he founded “The Epigraphic Society of Spain”. In 1999 he founded another journal of Egyptology: “Osiris. Journal of Egyptology”; He is the author of the first course with a simple method to learn how to read Egyptian hieroglyphics (in Spanish language) which was sold in installments, as a collectible, from 1995 to 1998.
He has been investigating Atlantis for more than twenty years, directly from historical sources, especially through Palaeography and Lexicology, ie, through ancient codices, papyri and manuscripts written in Greek, Latin, Egyptian and Arabic (between other languages) following the handwriting tradition of Plato’s The Timaeus and Critias, and all ancient texts that referred to Atlantis or to Atlantean people. His great passion is the study of the origins of Ancient
