Thera, Greece (#3)

photo of Thera, Greece

The pumice fall from the 1600 BC eruption of Thera Volcano overlies the buried soil. Bill Rose, our long-time friend from Michigan Technological University, points out the base of the thick deposits in the Phera Quarry. Many potsherds have been found in the soil layer buried by the great eruption.
