Putting it all together-Sketch map adding the Gateway to Atlantis and Atlantis in the Carribean theory together with D. Crisp's European Continental-shelves Atlantean Kingdoms (Featuring a version of the North Sea/Northern Atlantis theory) and adding the corresponding Tunisian/Maltan theory (Including several versions of Atlas=Atlantis and Atlantis-on-Lake-Tritonis theories, including the Megalithic Origin Libyan-Atlantis of Robert Graves in The Greek Myths) The outlying regions of Greece and Egypt are at rusk at the time of this map and the map shows the known portions of "Libya and Asia (Minor) together" that Atlantis was larger than at the time, with a roughly corresponding reconstruction for Atlantis. These Continental-shelf cultures would be Megalithic by definition and retreating steadily under the sealevel rising of Global Superfloods 2 and 3 (or 1b and 1c) at approximately 10000 to 5000 BC (12000 to 7000 years ago)
