The downfall of the Minoan Empire
Every thing was going well on a fine day in Crete...
Or so they thought but in truth everything was about to go really wrong...
Because, the volcano on Thera/Santori erupted
Which caused many problems for the Minoan People
First, the ground started shaking and all of the buildings fell...
Trapping many Minoans and killing others.
Then as they were recovering huge waves, or what we now call tsunamis hit them...
Which killed anyone not high in the mountains
Then all of the survivors were hit by huge waves of poisonous gasses which came pouring out of the volcano
As well as the falling lava that turned into rock. Which finished off the Minoans for good
Their empire was over!!
