Archaeological Excavations Photos at Akrotiri - Santorini

archaeological excavations in Akrotiri Santorini

Archaeological excavations in Akrotiri, in the south of Santorini, have unearthed a prehistoric city.

This city, inhabited 3600 years ago by an advanced civilization probably of Minoan origin...

Were they the "Atlanteans" of Atlantis?

In any case, during the eruption of the volcano, Akrotiri was completely buried under ash, much like Pompeii in Italy.

Moreover, due to prevailing winds, the ash and smoke expelled also headed towards Egypt, darkening the sky for 3 long years...

This provides a plausible explanation for the origin of the myth of the Ten Plagues of Egypt!
