Placing Atlantis properly into history has been one of my more interesting problems. The biggest problem was actually expanding my vision to correctly see the actual ocean of direct evidence that exists.
What we do have is three totally good dates to act as bench marks for dead reckoning navigation.
My first is 2400 BC or so. This date conforms to the building of the Great Pyramid in Egypt, Commencement of Mining at Grand Maanan in Wales for copper and commencement of mining for native copper in Leke Superior. This date has a small error factor of plus or minus whatever carbon dating can give us but not too much.
what it so totally important is that high quality bronze was needed at the Great Pyramid for cutting quality stone and this demanded a high quality sea going trade route. It also demanded a steady stream of cedar cants from the Levant as well and obviously control of the Mediterranean out of Crete.
all this imfers a sophisticated robust sea going culture centered on the Atlantic. We also suspect that the Huge islands of Atlantis, Lyonese, the Bahamsa and Cuba were all extant as well. These nicely compare to England, Ireland, France and Japan respectively. do look at the subsea maps please.
for the next thousand years, the Atlantean culture became global and surely introduced pyramid building anywhere their technical culture took hold. during this era, they also introduced various bforms of writing as well which culminated in our greek alphabet and also plausibly Chinese ideographs. Understand that one form preserved language for a century or two until we produced the king James bible in english to lock it down. The other prserved information such as TCM or traditional chinese medicine.
while the culture became global, command and control never did because it could not. Even if they used seven league boots, they still could not move armies.
understand also whenever they arrived, they first discovered a village living in the Stoneage and with little to offer commercially except surplus slaves and even that was not too welcome.
I should mention also that these folk all looked like native eastern natives simply because the White tribe dairy industry had not yet taken off yet at all. That really happened during the Iron Age with steel axes and out of the baltic region as well. and over ran europe and ultimately North and South America in our historic memory.
This Complex Bronze age society using copper ingots as currency lasted until 1159 BC when it abruptly collapsed leaving only independent stand alone trade stations.
I now conjecture that in 1159 BC, the mid atlantic ridge along with the cuban ridge subsided along its whole extent. This took down Lyonese, Atlantis, the Bahamas plateau and Cuba. It may well have been in whole or in part, but most likely it was a shearing event that propagated along the whole geological arc and served to bring it all down.
