The “Akrotiri” is an excavation site of the Minoan Bronze Age. The site is named for a Modern Greek village situated on a nearby hill.The recently excavated Akrotiri was buried  approx 1550 BC. Pottery, furniture, advanced drainage systems and three-story buildings have been discovered at the site from excavation begun in 1967.

This settlement of an advanced civilization, as well as the disaster that left it unknown through most of history, is widely accepted as the inspiration behind Plato’s story of Atlantis.
