Description

This book lets you wander through the labyrinth city of Knossos and lose yourself in its ancient treasures. There are full colour photographs of original artefacts, sculptures, reliefs and frescos that bring this fascinating palace to life. You can learn about the enthralling mythology that surrounds Knossos including the fabled minotaur that was said to dwell in a labyrinth in the gardens of the enormous palace. You can discover what everyday life was really like for the people of rural, urban and coastal Crete between 2000 and 1450BC. You can unearth the story of the city's discovery in the early 20th century and find out what can be seen at the historical site today.show more
