    Minoan prince on mural painting

    Was This Atlantis?

    The PBS series Secrets of the Dead aired "Sinking Atlantis," about the Minoan civilization that is the original source of the Atlantis legend. One theory is that the final blow to a declining Minoan civilization was a volcanic eruption, as happened with Roman Pompeii. EDSITEment has a lesson plan on Pompeii, and another one on Greek Mythology, a period contemporaneous with the Minoans. Study other Minoan contemporaries with the lesson plans on Egypt’s Pyramids, and Ancient Mesopotamia, and view Minoan artifacts from the EDSITEment-reviewed Timeline of Art History.
