Atlantean is a quartet of documentary films and accompanying book by Irish film maker Bob Quinn. The films and book dismissed as myth the popular belief in "Celtic" origins of the inhabitants of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Asturias, Brittany and Galicia and proposed instead that they are part of a common 'Atlantean' culture that includes the western seaboard of Europe and North Africa. Barry Cunliffe and John T. Koch have now edited "Celtic From The West"- Alternative Perspectives from Archaeology, Genetics, Language and Literature - which largely supports Bob Quinn's original speculations.
