Karen Mutton

I am a retired high school teacher of Ancient History and English with a BA Dip Ed, (Sydney University) with majors in English/History and a minor in Physical Anthropology. Since leaving teaching to raise my family, I have authored 5 books, including two on ancient/alternative history; 'Sunken Realms' and 'Scattered Skeletons in Our Closet' published by Adventures Unlimited Press. My book 'Scattered Skeletons in Our Closet' was one of the first to describe certain anomalous skulls in 2010. Following the results of DNA evidence confirming the link of the Paracas people to the Black Sea, I have updated my research and included more examples from Europe and China.Nexus magazine has published quite a number of my articles over the past 13 years. I also give public lectures, including three Nexus conferences, on ancient history, prehistory and finance.

My current focus is upon human origins, underwater archeology and alternative history. I am also in the process of writing a companion to 'Sunken Realms' called 'Subterranean Realms.' Travelling the world to exotic places and historical/archeological sites is my passion.
