Esta región está marcada por las tradiciones de mantenimiento de registros que se remontan miles de años y por generaciones de historiadores dedicados a la minería de dichos registros. A menudo se llama la "cuna de la civilización occidental", pero también es en gran medida la cuna de la vulcanología. La documentación más antigua conocida de la actividad volcánica es una pintura de la pared de Anatolia de la erupción de un cono de ceniza zona alrededor de 6200 aC, el registro vigorosa del Etna se remonta a 1500 aC, y la catastrófica erupción del Vesubio en 79 dC, con el entierro de Pompeya, continúa sirven hoy como una lección de vulcanismo. La región nos ha dado el primer caso documentado "nueva montaña," Monte Nuovo, en 1538, la primera "nueva isla" en Santorini, en el 197 aC, y la palabra "volcán" en sí mismo (derivados de Vulcano, el dios romano del fuego) .
