Hello everyone !
The myth of Atlantis
The myth of Atlantis is probably one of the most famous in the history of mankind.
Described for the first time by the Greek philosopher Plato, it tells the story of a prosperous and conquering civilization living on the island of Atlantis, which ends up engulfed by the waves in a cataclysm brought on by Zeus.
According to many archaeologists, this legend actually describes the fall of the Minoan Empire.
Around 3,650 years ago, a powerful volcanic eruption rocked the island of Santorini, then called Thera.
The magma chamber emptied so quickly that the center of the island literally collapsed, triggering a tsunami that struck the ridge and engulfed much of Thera underwater.
This incident obviously marked the abrupt end of the Minoan Empire.
Good day and good game ;)
