SANTORINI VOLCANO 1600 BC TSUNAMI

Many historians believe the explosive eruption of Santorini in the Aegean Sea in 1500BC caused a tsunami that brought widespread devastation to the eastern Mediterranean and Crete.

In about 1600 B.C., roughly three centuries before the Trojan War, the Santorini volcano, 200 times as powerful as the Mount St. Helens explosion, sent waves hundreds of feet high across the Mediterranean, devastating Crete, capital of the Minoan empire, its fleet and its coastal cities. Fatally weakened, the empire was later conquered by the Mycenaeans of the Greek mainland, who established the model for Western culture. (For example, Minoan doors had no locks, while Mycenaeans built citadels.)
