Hello my name is Jesse and I have a podcast about the history of the Atlantic World!  It's really fun to work on, and if you are interested please check it out!

Here is a bit of a promo for episode 10, just released today!

Decades before the voyage of Columbus, the armies of Portugal and Spain face off against each other on the Canary Islands in the very first European colonial war. At risk was control of nothing less than all the wealth and power of the newly developing overseas empire based on sugar and slaves. 

For the Guanche, the native islanders of the Canaries - far more was at stake.

I've always been intrigued by the Atlantis debate.

The existence of Atlantis, whether it did or didn't, is placed at the feet of Plato, who described Atlantis as being just west of The Pillars or Hercules (sometimes referred to as the Gates of Hercules". If we accept that the Pillars of Hercules were in the fact the mouth of the Mediterranean Sea, that would place Atlantis somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean.

Experts in many fields have argued both for and against the story of Atlantis, which has never been discovered by archaeologists, despite many searches in and around the Mediterranean and to the west of Gibraltar.

If Atlantis existed, it would be more than reasonable to expect that other scholars of the time would have mentioned it. But, is it possible that the city did exist and sunk beneath the ocean surface as the result of a major earthquake? Possible, but no-one has mentioned that such an event took place (during the relevant period).

As ever, I maintain an open mind on this.

Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

It's not that I was born in Ireland,
It's the Ireland that was born in me.
