Description

Author Ellis' detective story explores the origins and various manifestations of the Atlantis legend, the "scientific evidence" marshaled to prove different theories, and the possibility that the fable of Atlantis was inspired by a conflation of the high culture of Minoan Crete with the destruction wrought on the Aegean world by the cataclysmic eruption of the volcanic island Thera (or Santorini) around 1500 BC.

Description
Ever since Plato created the legend of the lost island of Atlantis, it has maintained a uniquely strong grip on the human imagination. For two and a half millennia, the story of the city and its catastrophic downfall has inspired people - from Francis Bacon to Jules Verne to Jacques Cousteau - to speculate on the island's origins, nature, and location, and sometimes even to search for its physical remains.
