Akrotiri is the name of an excavation site of a Minoan Bronze settlement associated with the Minoan civilization The excavation is named for a modern Greek village situated on a hill nearby.

Akrotiri was buried by the widespread Theran eruption in the middle of the second milmlenniu BC; as a result, like the Roman ruins of Pompeii after it, it is remarkably well-preserved. Frescoes, pottery, furniture, advanced drainage systems and three-story buildings have been discovered at the site, whose excavation was started in 1967 by Spyridon Marinatos and after some years of redulding reopened in April, 2012.
