This theory has it that the collection of maps used in Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings are not all contemporaneous, that they contain interglacial, glacial and postglacial (Holocene) geographical references. Some of the maps do seem to indicate conditions during and just prior to the Younger Dryas: my impression was that the oldest ones had a pretty good knowledge of the Mediterranean and Gulf of Mexico/Caribbean areas. Therefore the area reflects Donnelly's Atlantean Empire rather well.
Below is a map from Stacy-Judd's Atlantis, The Mother of Empires, 1939, which takes Spence's multiple migrations out of Atlantis and associates the migrations with different cultural levels on a steadily-sinking Atlantis. This stage associated with the Magdalenians in Europe was also supposed to have eventually resulted in the American Mound-Builders and even the early Egyptians (pre-Pyramid stage), Since I had more recently gone once again into the territory of Magdalenians being connected to Moundbuilders (Hopewellians in particular), I thought it would be a good idea to trot the map out again. Graham Hancock’s book Underworld (2002) notes a sudden influx of glacial meltwater at about 16000 to 14000 years ago as the first of three “Global Superfloods”, each of the three being derived from the melting of the continental glaciers, in stages.
Map of the Ancient Sea kings Atlantis at Left. This was discussed in the first "Surveys of Atlantis" article on this blog, almost a full years ago.
Which brings up the interesting feature that This conventionalized idol as the shape of the Goddess' body is something that was established during the Magdalenian period in Europe and religiously repeated endlessley over thousands of years up until the end of the Ice Age!
It also does not matter what the material is bone or flint, ivory or polished stone: the shape is what is important and it is always the same shape. It is also the same "Goddess" shape when engraved onto cave walls, such as the Gonnersdorf figurines below.
In a later blog I shall go more into the concentric circle pattern, its relationship to the Omphalos or Center of the World, and its actual identity as the Representative Vagina of The Original Earth Mother Goddess of Atlantis, whom Plato calls Cleito, ie, Clitoris.
