by Charles R. about one of the past two centuries' most important archaeological discoveries.

Charles Pellegrino (Author). From Publishers Weekly. ISBN-13: 978-0394575506. Paleontologist Pellegrino makes an intriguing case for this thesis. The Minoan isle, heart of a naval empire which controlled much of the Greek mainland, sustained a city with multi-storied, exquisitely decorated buildings and a technology later copied by Greece.

Reviews:
  • Malodor
One of the better archaeologists/anthropologists able to explain things lost or forgotten in the Ancient World. Perhaps no one other than Sitchin could inspire thought and wonder into the workings of Lost America, or Lost Africa, the Mediterranean, or of the dynasties that no longer exist, or are quite difficult to interpret, Yet Charles Pellegrino is one of the talented ones to do just that. Between geology and archaeologists, few others have enough insight or inspiration to rediscover that which was once discovered, then lost again.
You'll read this thing, and next you'll be visiting some library, website, and figuring out your own quest to satisfy your thirst for more information. You will see the world and continental drift from other vistas, and you'll realize just how many changes you probably didn't know about; or those angles that never occurred to you to look for. My warning to you is that no matter how many times you read this, and works like it, every time you go back and look at it again, a new candle will light up and you'll get or see things that you missed during the previous reads. Besides, the author explains most of this in plain English to help your quest for further light and knowledge

I have been fascinated with the story of Atlantis and the Thera volcano since I was a child. This book is one of the best I have read on the subject. Pellegrino does an excellent job of describing the Thera volcano itself and it's effects across the globe, how it changed world history and the archaeological evidence and uncovering the lost Minoan civilization.
  • ACOS
Interesting data deliberately oddly organized, with no clear thesis and no clear proof of so- called Atlantis. There is much of interest here but the jumping chronology and subject matter only loosely related to "Atlantis" is irritating, and seems repetitious when compared with Pelligrino's Ghosts of Vesuvius. Wordy, with many citations, some of which seem irrelevant. Still a good read. But: A missed opportunity.

This book details the story of "Thera" a Mediterranean island volcano which erupted in 1500 B.C.. anilating the Minoan culture and may have been responsible for the stories of the flood, the sinking of Atlantis and the Egyptian plagues which
were described in the bible.

This is an excellent book. If you have ever visited Santorini this will tell you what you saw, and what you may have missed! After reading this, you may decide to put a trip to Santorini on your 'bucket list'.
