First of all, it is my duty to make it clear for the reader that this book is a very condensed summary of a series of books that have been already published, more than thirty books written by the author about historical and scientific Atlantology. On this occasion, the author has tried to summarize as much as possible the extensive footnotes, dense critical apparatus, and extensive bibliographic references from previous editions, which were aimed at a more academic or specialized public.
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

About the author

Historical-Scientific Atlantology Adviser for National Geographic Channel and James Francis Cameron & Simcha Jacobovici Producers, Accepted Member of The Epigraphic Society, President Emeritus of the Scientific Atlantology International Society (SAIS), Writer, expert in ancient languages and writing.
He was born in Cuba, although his father and mother, grandparents, great-great-grandparents, great-great-great-grandparents and other ancestors (as far as he knows) were Spanish (he also had some Greek ancestors on his mother’s side). In 1992 he was appointed honorary member (also Accepted Member) in The Epigraphic Society by his discoveries and research on ancient pre-Columbian inscriptions in Cuba, Caribe and Antilles. He has been living in Spain from 1994. In 1995 he founded the journal “Archaeology and Enigmas of History”, soon after he founded others, such as “Archaeology without Frontiers”, “ArchaeoHistory”, “Canaán: Magazine of Biblical Archaeology”, and the first journal of Egyptology in Spanish, with distribution in kiosks and bookstores all around Spain and America: “The Sphinx. 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

Georgeos Díaz-Montexano
Il libro che ha ispirato James F. Cameron e Simcha Jacobovici per una serie di documentari del National Geographic, soprattutto su Atlantide vicino alle coste del Sud e del Sudovest della Spagna.
Questo libro è un riassunto molto condensato di una serie di oltre trenta libri sull'atlantologia storico-scientifica pubblicata dall'atlantologo ed epigrafista ispano-cubano Georgeos Díaz-Montexano, President Emeritus of the Scientific Atlantology International Society (SAIS). In questa occasione l'autore ha cercato di sintetizzare le estese note a piè di pagina, i densi apparati critici e le lunghe liste bibliografiche delle voluminose edizioni precedenti rivolte ad un pubblico più accademico, universitario o specializzato, dato che l’obiettivo di questa breve opera è fornire al lettore interessato -qualunque sia il suo livello di formazione- una visione rapida e semplice di alcuni degli aspetti più rilevanti delle ipotesi, ricerche, contributi e scoperte fatte dall’autore negli ultimi vent’anni sulla questione di Atlantide, soprattutto di quei punti delle ricerche trattati -e spiegati molto brevemente- nell’appassionante documentario Atlantis Discovered, prodotto da James Francis Cameron, Yaron Niski e Felix Goluveb per National Geographic, diretto dal pluripremiato regista israelo-canadese Simcha Jacobovici e con la collaborazione del noto archeologo e semitologo Dr. Richard Freund. A tale proposito, l’intento dell’autore è fare in modo che questo libro serva, tra l’altro, da complemento per ampliare dati e dettagli che non possono essere apprezzati nel documentario per un’elementare logica di produzione, di tempi e di finalità.
