The history of the small island.
The island of Gaidaros is also called Egglezonisi (English island). The reason is that there lived in the 1930s an English archaeologist. His name was Terville Petr and he had left Berlin in 1931 to settle permanently on this island opposite Evia. In fact, he had rented the island and built his house there which was the only building on the island.
Petr had become known for a great discovery he made in the early years of his career as an archaeologist. In 1926 he had found in Africa a fossil of the prehistoric period.
