Peter JamesWikipedia's W.svg is a British ancient historian who has published Centuries of Darkness, a work which questions the idea of a lengthy Dark Age in the ancient Near East between the Bronze Age and the Iron Age. He has also published The Sunken Kingdom: The Atlantis Mystery Solved in which he and his co-authors claim to have uncovered a real, historical basis for Atlantis in what is today ManisaWikipedia's W.svg in Turkey. In his work on an alternate historical chronology, James shares some common ground with Immanuel Velikovsky and David Rohl.

James's attempt at historical revisionism could be the most seriously argued yet. To the general reader, it may be unclear whether to treat James's work as pseudohistory or legitimate questioning of the received wisdom on some issues.
