The Keftiu, modernized by Arthur Evans as “Minoan,” are still a mystery unsolved. What happened to them?
Were the Minoans the people Plato referred to as Atlanteans? What really happened to this bright Bronze Age civilization?
In his first controversial book on extraterrestrials in antiquity, the legendary UFO expert and author of the famous book “Chariots of the Gods,” Erich von Däniken devoted a chapter to the “Minoan Hypothesis.” This theory, derived from Plato’s descriptions of Atlantis, which were later associated with the destruction of Thera (Santorini), has been hotly debated for decades now.
