The wallpaintings of Santorini provide a wide picture of the island’s history, while they depict the highly developed ancient society of the Aegean. They were found during the excavations of 1967 to 1974 and represent the most significant findings since today, as their contribution to the overall knowledge of the Minoan civilization is crucial. Originally, they were displayed on walls of the prehistoric city of Akrotiri and they have been the object of systematic and in depth research for archaeologists, art historians, zoologists, botanists, and chemists.
