The Formorians are known to have been the first inhabitants of the tin-rich British Isles; they were known to the ancient Greeks as the Maurisi, and later, to the Romans as the Mauri, and still later, known to the Iberians of Spain as the Moors, descendants of the Atlanteans, some of whose ice age coastal cities’ ruins are now submerged in at least five locations off Spain, and several too off Morocco, known to the Romans as Mauritania, the homeland of the Formorians, part of the ancient kingdom of Atlantis, which was disrupted when the Ice Age ended, actually circa 1500 B.C., when the sea level rose, and the middle latitudes of the world dried out, as the climate rapidly changed at that time, when the “iron age” was beginning to be ushered in.
The fantastically rich mining sector of Atlantis, the Sierra Morena mountains of southern Spain, was known as Tharsin by the locals, Tarshish (a grandson of Japheth) by the Jews, and Tarsisi by the Assyrians, with whom the Atlanteans, later known as the Tartessians, traded metals for goods for many centuries, engaging those eastern Mediterranean trading partners, both before and after the end of the Ice Age, as the Sierra Morena’s are even-to-this-day one of the very richest mining districts in the world.
This Atlantean empire was in the Atlas Mountains region, named after Atlas, a son of Poseidon (the biblical Sidon), near the Straits of Gibraltar, as Plato indicated, but his date that Atlantis went under, 9,000 years before Solon’s time is clearly wrong, it was 900 years before his time, or 9,000 lunar cycles, because the hundreds of submerged megalithic ruins’ sites around the world belie the notion that the Ice Age ended over 7,000 years before such megalithic building is commonly acknowledged.
The Sea Peoples, in hundreds of ships, are known to have invaded Egypt circa 1400 B.C., a mystery to mainstream archaeologists, but shouldn’t be, when it’s considered that there were mass migrations all over the world, by land and sea, with the end of the Ice Age, when vast tracts of coastal land were consumed by the sea, and the Middle East and north Africa, including Egypt, turned to desert, when the Atlanteans, known to the Greeks as the Atalantes, as well as, the Maurisi, were forced to migrate as many of their coastal cities had succumbed to the sea when the Ice Age ended.
And to learn the ancient mapping method used during the time of Atlantis, and the building of the Great Pyramid of Giza, checkout article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com, to see that the ancients truly were sophisticated navigators, at the time of Atlantis, when Plato says they were sailing in huge trireme ships, with metal weapons, clearly a bronze age civilization, not from circa 9600 B.C. as Plato mistakenly reported, but from the time of the Exodus, http://genesisveracityfoundation.com.
