Aegean civilization is a general term for the Bronze Age civilizations of Greece around the Aegean are three distinct but communicating and interacting geographic regions covered by this term: Crete, the Cyclades and the Greek mainland.

Crete is associated with the Minoan civilization from the Early Bronze Age. The Cyclades converge with the mainland during the Early Helladic. How does this relate to the Thera debate? It is clear from the proceedings of the Third Thera and the Aegean World Congress that Thera is the only eruption known to occur in the bracket ~ bce.

None of the other suggested candidate eruptions have been proven to lie within this bracket.Some of the strongest arguments in favor of the Thera theory of Atlantis come from two dialogues written by Greek philosopher Plato.

His works Timaeus and Critias, written around the ’s B.C., used the debates and conversations of characters to discuss and reveal the thinker’s own thoughts and discoveries about the ancient civilization.This book is a comprehensive up-to-date survey of the Aegean Bronze Age, from its beginnings to the period following the collapse of the Mycenaean palace system.

In essays by leading authorities commissioned especially for this volume, it covers the history and the material culture of Crete, Greece, and the Aegean Islands from c– BCE.
