Atlantis and the cycle of global cataclysm

The location, geophysics and astrophysics of the lost continent of Atlantis

The Robert Cowley Memorial Lecture
The public is warmly welcomed to attend this lecture

Many books have been written about Atlantis. Most of them have concentrated on the issue of location or on fantastic ideas associated with supposed Atlantean technological culture. John Gordon will be talking about specific aspects of his new book, The Rise and Fall of Atlantis (due to be published by Watkins in March 2008) which, whilst specifying an Atlantic location and dealing with many other ancillary issues, concentrates on the associated geophysics and astrophysics (simply explained) which caused the (several) Atlantean cataclysms and totally changed the face of what now constitutes Western Europe. The talk will also suggest an explanation as to why these same cataclysms tie in with the precessionary cycle. It will be supported by graphics via a Power Point presentation.

John Gordon is a Fellow of the Theosophical Society. He is also the author of several books ranging from Ancient Egyptian philosophy and mysticism to ancient metaphysics and esoteric astrology.
