When was The Archipelago created?
The Archipelago was created in 1980.
Archipelago is actually a chain of islands, or a cluster of islands. Technically islands that are created through movement of our plates. Before many used Archipelago to refer to the Aegean Islands. Now it is generally used to refer to any island group or to a certain Sea containing a large number of scattered islands.
An archipelago is a geographical series of islands usually formed when a volcanic 'hot spot' beneath the Earth's crust punches out a new island which rises to above sea level. As plate tectonics, or continental drift, slowly moves the island along with the plate. A new island can be created above the hot spot in the same place as the previous island and in this way a string or 'archipelago' is slowly created.
