Past Perspectives- History seen from different angles.
< Most history we learn, be it in junior school or university is wrong. And not just wrong but intentionally misrepresented.

A Return To Hy Brasil, The Other Atlantis
Before dismissing Hy Brasil as the stuff of Fairy stories it is worth reminding ourselves that the Atlantic Ocean as we know it now is not as it was always known.

Our Debt To Islam
In the dark ages the light of wisdom was almost extinguished in Europe and North Africa by the religious fanaticism of Christians.
