The Historical Background of The Doomsday Mask - Part Three
The Pleistocene Extinction
The world's paleontologists are largely agreed that a catastrophic event happened 12,000 years ago, or in 10,000 BC, around the same time as the supposed destruction of Atlantis depicted in The Doomsday Mask. Vast numbers of large mammals such as mammoths, mastodons, sabre-toothed tigers and others vanished almost overnight. You can learn more about the Pleistocene Extinction here. You can learn more about all the historical events that served as inspiration for the novel here on my website.
