I love attending Dimitra’s seminars. She is always engaging, knowledgeable and thorough. Fascinating topic
This is a fascinating seminar for anyone interested in archaeology, history or the Greek Islands. Dimitra Pilarinou makes the story of this ancient town come alive in her highly organized and informative, yet entertaining presentation. The ruins of Akrotiri do not get the attention they deserve from the rest of the world! I particularly enjoyed how Dimitra tied the volcanic explosion to other historic references and also debunked some of the "Atlantis" myths that are floating around. Highly recommended.
This is the 4th lecture from Dimitra Pilarinou that we’ve attended, and like the others it was fascinating and superbly organized. Just this past October we visited Santorini and took a guided tour of Akrotiri, but we learned much more in this lecture than we even picked up on site. Dimitra placed everything in historical context, before, during, and after the eruption, and provided the best depiction of the actual event itself that I’ve seen. Highly recommended.
Dimitra Pilarinou is a most fantastic Archeologist. Her wonderful "conversation on the Santorini Volcano was more interesting and informative than I expected. In fact it was truly frightening to think that we are the "victims" of these natural catastrophies. I loved seeing what was found under the 200 feet of pumice and the tragedy of how this volcano caused so much havoc. I want to do another seminar with her!
Dimitra's presentation was thoughtful, informative and engaging. I specifically enjoyed learning about the current excavation efforts on the island. Truly fantastic!
