At one tip of the tiny Mediterranean island of Santorini is an archeological dig that has uncovered one of the oldest known civilizations: "Archaeologists are constantly trying to determine if it might be the legendary Atlantis, the island that once supported a thriving civilization but somehow sank into the ocean... Archaeologists believe a volcano appeared here about 80,000 years ago. They say the eruption was so terrific that the ash found on the seabed indicates it fell over the area that stretches from Italy to North Africa to Cyprus."
