John V. Luce - The ​End of Atlantis
In ​the 15th century BC, a volcanic eruption of exceptional violence occurred on the island Thera (Santorini), 75 miles north of Crete. Did this mark the destruction of Atlantis, the story of which Plato gave to the world 11 centuries later? Was there ever such an island as he describes, the home of an advanced culture and the centre of a great empire? If so, where was it, when did its civilisation flourish, and why did it disappear? Mr Luce, with the help of archaeologists, vulcanologists, seismologists and oceanographers, suggests the real truth.
