Nearly 7,500 years ago a massive asteroid impacted the Atlantic Ocean with such ferocity that it embedded itself in the earth’s molten hot core.
Immediate and significant changes were felt as far away as the Caspian Sea, England, and Sudan. Flood waters would soon encompass some of the most expansive plains areas throughout the Mediterranean region, including the area known today as Turkey. With such a mighty force behind it, the waters were driven inland where they peaked over eastern Turkey at a height of four-to-six miles.
Covill identifies the continuing ecological changes that have derived from such a cataclysmic event while simultaneously solving a myriad of other questions that have baffled mankind for a millennia.
“Author Raymond A. Covill presents a unique and utterly fascinating look at an event that has shaped and continues to reshape our ever-evolving planet to this very day,” said Kathie McGuire, director of Brighton Publishing LLC. “Revisiting Armageddon: Asteroids in the Gulf of Mexico is a revelatory and impactful presentation of an event so earthshaking it seems to defy our imaginations.”
Born and raised in the Fairhaven/New Bedford area of Massachusetts, Covill was raised with an understanding and respect for nature and the beautiful planet we live on. Many days were spent birding, boating, or simply enjoying the outdoors with the company of his wife. Together they have made extensive travels to both North and Central America and are continually asking themselves the difficult questions that drive us on to greater heights.
