The Dodecanese Islands are believed by geologists to be the peaks of the Aegean mountains - a mainland that linked Greece and Asia before it submerged in the Mediterranean Sea several million years ago. The Dodecanese has been inhabited since prehistoric times. The jewel of the archipelago is undoubtedly the island of Rhodes, glorified by Homer in the "Iliad".
