I watched with interest the BBC's new series on Atlantis that looks at the adventures of a man called Jason (as in Argonauts fame). The opening sequence was most encouraging as it showed our hero on a exploration boat in the North Sea and not the Mediterranean as most deluded academics are now claiming.
He then takes a submersible (mini submarine) down to what can only be Doggerland at the bottom of the North Sea and finds relics from an ancient civilisation - so far so good... then it goes off into a world where historical accuracy has no meaning.
As the primary expert on the subject - see The Epilogue of my book published on this blog site - I feel that I should offer my services to the producers and director so that they can correct the mistakes of the first series, if a second is commissioned. For although, the location of Atlantis was correct (or limited filming budget may have used this location by luck?) the historical accuracy of the city and people of Atlantis was plainly wrong!
As an illustration, the city was on a rock face with high walls like a castle. Plato's description of Atlantis was a City of concentric circles on a flat fertile plain. The reason the city had concentric circles is because it was a civilisation of mariners, who traded and lived on ships and they moored these boats within these safe harbours as we found in the ancient prehistoric site of Avebury, where you can still see the size and scale of these internal round harbours. Sadly apart from him swimming to shore the lack of boats in Atlantis is a mystery as nearly everyone in the city seemed to be a trader of tropical fruit without obvious means of transport.
... they say that Hercules, too, once visited them; and when going into battle, they sang of him first of all heroes. They have also those songs of theirs, by the recital of this barditus as they call it, they rouse their courage, while from the note they augur the result of the approaching conflict. For, as their line shouts, they inspire or feel alarm.
