Hans Schindler (1901 – 1982), [AKA H. S. Bellamy, Hans Schindler Bellamy], was a Viennese English professor who wrote a number of books on ancient history which are now generally classed as pseudohistory or pseudoarchaeology. As the title suggests "The Calendar of Tiahuanaco" focuses on what Bellamy believed to be an ancient calendar preserved in the carvings on the "Tiahuanaco Gateway" at the eponymous Pre-Columbian archaeological site in western Bolivia near Lake Titicaca. Bellamy's other works included "Moons, Myths and Man. A Reinterpretation" (on Hanns Hörbiger and the "Cosmic Ice Theory"); "The Book of Revelation is History" (1942); "Built before the Flood". (1943); "In the Beginning God" (1945); "The Atlantis Myth" (1948); "Life History of our Earth. Based on the geological application of Hoerbiger's Theory" (1951); and - again with Peter Allan, "The Great Idol of Tiahuanaco." (1959).
