In the field with Simon Haslett, Professor of Physical Geography at the University of Wales and his initial examination of field evidence from the Greek island of Kos regarding the controversial theory that a mega tsunami was generated by the catastrophic eruption of the volcanic island of Santorini in the Aegean Sea, in the eastern Mediterranean, during the Late Bronze Age around 3500 years ago. It is known that the Minoan civilization of Crete collapsed around this time, which is usually attributed to the Santorini eruption and a resulting tsunami, but is there evidence that a mega tsunami actually occurred?

A shovel and a clean 5 foot pit would show you the strata immediately.(of course you might need a permit). They already proved there was a Tsunami in Crete following the Eruption. However I think they totally under estimated how deep inland the tsunami traveled.
