Geologists have reconstructed the history of a lost continent in the Mediterranean, Greater Adria. It crashed into southern Europe about 100 million years ago and began to subduct under the larger continent, and its scraped-off surface crumpled together to become mountainous terrain throughout southern and eastern Europe, notably including the Apennine mountains in central Italy.
