LITTLE - ATLANTIS AND THE GREAT BIMINI HOAX
on from his memorable appearance at QuestCon in 2003, Greg Little
returns to QuestCon 2006 from Memphis to present an audio-visual
show containing stunning new evidence of underwater archaeological
structures off the coasts of three Bahaman islands - Anquilla Island
in the Cay Sal group just 24 miles from Cuba, Andros Island, the
largest landmass in the archipelago, and Bimini, site of the famous
Bimini Road. Greg and his wife, Lora, began investigating underwater
sites in the Bahamas after Andrew Collins's book GATEWAY TO ATLANTIS
(2000) stimulated their first search to look for underwater and
landscape archaeological remains at Andros.
will summarize their finds and will also show footage from his DVD 'The
Bimini Hoax', which proves beyond all doubt that the principal marine
geologist who in the 1970s dismissed the Bimini Road - a J-shaped stone
feature over one kilometre in length - as random natural beach rock
back, deliberately hoaxed his findings.
Incredibly, in 2005
the Little's discovered a series of underwater stone circles strewn
with stone anchors about 1 km from the Bimini Road site. Video from
these sites at Bimini (scheduled for June 06) will also be shown for
the first time.
In a totally
original presentation, based on the first ever proper study of
prehistoric underwater archaeology in the Bahamas, Greg offers
overwhelming evidence that the archipelago supported a series
of prehistoric breakwaters, jetties and quays, where ancient stone
anchors have also been discovered and recorded. Working with archaeologist
Bill Donato, the Little's research in 2005 was the first discovery
confirming an ancient maritime culture at Bimini. These underwater
stone structures resemble harbor formations built by the Maya
in the Yucatan but are more sophisticated constructions similar
to a host of ancient Mediterranean harbors.
was responsible for these prehistoric harbours remains a mystery,
although it is becoming clear that they are similar to those built
by maritime voyagers from Spain, North Africa or the Eastern Mediterranean.

None of this counts
as evidence for Atlantis; however, the mere existence of these structure
is far reaching, and supports the idea that Plato's Atlantis was indeed
inspired by transatlantic journeys prior to his own day.
