he Amazon Research Network is a non-profit Internet Platform
which entirely devotes to the investigation of the historical Amazons.
This platform was founded in 1996
with the object of
- making public over the Internet
that there is active research work concerning the historical Amazons
- presenting current research results
- promoting further investigations and intensifying current research
on the history of the Amazons.
The founder of the Amazon Research Network,
Gerhard Pöllauer, born 1962,
is an Austrian archaeologist and historian
who is engaged in the research of the Amazon history for more than 30 years.
On this photo, which has been taken on our exploring expedition in September 1999,
he is standing in the doorway of the mysterious castle Karpu Kale
- presumably the last refuge of the Amazons.
