Look at her face - this has to be a portrait of a real girl! At least, that's my premise for the next book. Minoan wall Fresco of The Saffron Gatherers (detail) 1650 BC - Akrotiri, Santorini Island

Akrotiri is of a Minoan Bronze Age settlement on the Greek island of Santorini, associated with the Minoan civilization due to inscriptions in Linear A, and close similarities in artifact and fresco styles. Akrotiri was buried by the widespread Thera eruption in the middle of the second millennium BC. Frescoes, pottery, furniture, advanced drainage systems and three-story buildings have been discovered at the site.

In Greece there is an island called Santorini. On the island of Santorini lays an ancient city called Akrotiri. Akrotiri was once home to the Minoan civilization. Today it is home to a large archeological site to unearth the city and find its wonders.
