Behind the scenes Edit
The names of Akrotiri and the other Think Tank scientists are all derived from locations or geographical features associated with the volcanic Greek island Santorini. Akrotiri is a Bronze Age settlement on the island which was buried by the volcano and excavated beginning in the 20th century.
