Picture of The Triumph of the Sea Gods: The War Against the Goddess Hidden in Homer's Tales.
If you thought that Homer's tales of the Trojan wars were historical events set in the Mediterranean Sea, Sora puts forth some compelling evidence that it's just not so. Not only do the tales not fit geographically, but there is evidence to support his claim which removes the Trojan War from its classical location on the Aegean shores of Asia Minor and moves it to the lost civilization described by Plato.

Description

In "The Triumph of the Sea Gods", Steven Sora argues compellingly that Homer's tales do not describe adventures in the Mediterranean, but are adaptations of Celtic myths that chronicle an Atlantic coastal war that took place off the Iberian Peninsula around 1200 B.C. It was a war between the pro-goddess Celtic culture that presided over what is now Portugal and the patriarchal culture of the sea-faring Atlanteans. The invasion of the Atlantean sea peoples brought destruction to the entire region stretching from Western Europe's Atlantic border to Egypt, Syria, and Turkey. This was a turning point not only politically but also spiritually. The goddess became demonized, as seen in myths such as Pandora's Box in which woman was seen as the source of evil not the origin of life, and Homer's tale of the epic Greek and Trojan war, which was triggered by the abduction of a woman. The actual historical struggle described in Homer's stories, Sora explains, occurred during what was the last in a series of rises in sea level that inundated various land masses (Atlantis) and permitted sea passage to areas previously accessible only by land. The "Sea Gods" (Atlanteans) attacked the tri-city region of Troia (Troy), near present-day Lisbon, which, shortly thereafter, fell victim to a devastating series of seaquakes and tsunamis. The war and the subsequent destructive weather broke the power of this seaboard civilization, leading to a wholesale invasion by the sea peoples and the rapid decline of the region's goddess-worshipping culture that had reigned there since Neolithic times.
