    I appreciate the general truth behind this series. I also appreciate that this series is taking on a more factual approach than that of Anc. Aliens on the H Channel, which I do not respect (that series or channel).
    This series, on the opposite end, focuses on the truth, what we do know or can truly infer, and what conclusions we can now draw from these legitimate and factual findings under the seas/oceans.
    Please continue this series and remain true to providing truth to the world so as to educate us and our youth with empowered knowledge in the betterment of furthering our society.

    Very cool thanks . My dad used to live on Cyprus and snorkeled off the beach .
    he found a bunch of broken pots .
    Took some to show the folks at the museum , who immediately confiscated them .
    He did bring me one of the pot necks , inner diameter 70 mm overall 300 mm .
    The handles were flatter than the ones seen here . :-)

      @Scott Gordon Brits always had a hard time understanding the concept of ownership of a land's historical legacy.

    Sudden environment change may be equivalent to "wrath of the gods". It's great that science can help us identify these changes. It'd be nice to find them, time them, and measure them. Figure out how often they occur, where and how big. Tons of near extinction events. Sadly some changes, like water tables in Punjab, put a billion people at risk. Twice I saw floods wipe out neighborhoods down by the river in my city and those homes stunk. Everything had to be thrown out. Yeah, definitely a problem.

    While in this video, they claim a date for 1625 BCE for the eruption if Thera, the trfra( pumice and ash from the eruption that fell as far away as the Nile Delta , some 4-500 miles away in the sediments have been dated to Circa 1550 BCE based upon pollen dating, this also coincides with the Ahmose Stele telling of darkness falling over Egypt, and a great storm coming over the land. The eruption estimated at VEI 7+ emptied the magma chamber of approximately 10 cubic kilometers and the volcanic cone subsided into it both causing the Tsunami and pulling water from all the Oceans as the Mediterranean attempted to stabilize. Along with it, there would be gale force winds being pulled to the eruption column as the heated air rose with the tefra . Additionally, to crack the staircase at Aquateri, the earthquake would have been at least magnitude of 7+ , not unusual preceeding an eruption. Especially with it mist likely occurring due to mivement if the African plate , possibly causing the known tectonic boundary that crosses Anatolia has been known to have a zipper effect even leading into Mainland Greece. So far, no one has considered the acoustic effect of the eruption. When Krakatoa erupted in 1863 CE, the sound was described as a cannon being shot nearby, 3000 miles from the eruption. Imagine what the people in Crete would have heard only 70 miles away, surely the “ Gods” must be angry..
    If the Stories from Mycenae have any possible bearing as to the general relations between Crete and Mycenae then after the eruption, Mycenae then invaded Crete, as there is evidence that much of the remaining population on Crete moved to virtually inaccessible locations in the mountains. Such a move is usually for defensive purposes.

    Waves of ten meters high? Sounds like the story of "Atlantis sinking" could have been about this. I'm a firm believer that Atlantis never existed. It most likely was an important place that went the same way as shown here but was never called Atlantis when it was around. Only difference is the time frame. However, between the time Atlantis supposedly existed and this event would be a couple thousand years. Could have been the same volcano just different eruptions.

    Q. "Why did the historian Polybius wait almost a century to tell of this great battle?"
    A. Well. To be honest... There could be various reasons why.
    1. If he was apart of the battle... He could have been traumatized by its impact and needed time to process such a deadly assault that took so many lives and precious cargo.
    2. He could have been sworn into secrecy about the events. Leaving him unable to speak about it until years later.
    3. Maybe he was just waiting for the right time to tell what all really happened.
    All these are logical reasons. There is no doubt according to all the archaeologists uncovered that their finds and Polybius story reveal and confirm the same events. Great finds! This is a GREAT documentary!🥰👍🏾💯 Excited to learn new truths.

    See in the first few minutes, where paintings are shown of men with cattle. As I am a firm believer in 'giants' of varying heights, I noticed the oddity of the cattle, in comparison with that of those ( the men) shown. Many have not yet learned/accepted the business of giants being a normal part of the past world/civilizations, even being around in certain isolated areas today !

    A lot of great information is synthesized in this video, but the over dramatization detracts from the value. You implied that the people of Akrotiri were caught in the major eruption, but all evidence suggests that they had abandoned the site and taken their valuables before the town was buried. Also, you constantly used the word "proves" which has no scientific value. I encourage you to aim a little higher.

    A simple explanation is that Santorini was Atlantis. The volcanic eruption had started the earthquake and flood that broke Atlantis, destroying the island of the Atlanteans. Could this be the actual island of Atlantis destroyed by a volcano because of the greed that the Minoans had? Why did the Minoans not remember where they came from until they faded away from history?

      @Anna-Lisa Girling Some of us believe that the destruction of Santorini caused the tsunami that pulled back the Red Sea (Gulf of Aqaba) allowing the Israelites to cross, but then slamming back down on the Egyptian Army circa 1625 bce. [This allowed them to destroy Jericho in the late 1500’s BCE which is when Dr Kenyon dates it to.] The fact that Exodus doesn’t mention it inundating the land of Goshen where they lived, strongly implies they were already gone at that time.
      This is MUCH earlier than the standard timeframe, (~1250 while Ramses the Great ruled - he wouldn’t be too great if the exodus plagues and drowning of his army happened on his watch) but lines up exactly with the end of the Middle Kingdom and the beginning of the hyksos rulers. In his history of Egypt, Meno wrote that the hyksos claimed to be unopposed when they conquered the land.

      Santorini was also the probable reason why the 7 Plagues of Egypt happened, too. Well, the geological reason that is. I won't argue this point with anyone in a religious context.

    So Polybius - one author- describes a battle of 400 ships - but only ten battering rams are found. But this single source, who had a bias (pro-Roman) is believed.

    I sure wouldn't want to be living anywhere near a volcano now and especially not in the middle of it in these last days!!!
    When God moves every mountain and island out of their places it would be a very bad place to be!!!
    But who knows they might be the lucky ones???

    caused by pyroclastic flows? looks more like giants did it to me - I can see one of their footprints at 10:58 - about a 1/3 of the screen up from the bottom and a little right of center - you can see the toe prints, and a heel print about 1/3 down from the top (and a bit to the left) - had to be an Atlantean ...Maybe the Titan Atlas, himself ..

      @DwayneShaw1 there's giants that are 9-40 ft tall and then you have the video where the giants would be way taller than any dinosaurs that have ever lived, it says that those shelfs are 20 stories. Even the biblical stories that mention giants were nowhere near that size. Thats if you even belive in them at all.
