Description

The legend of the Minotaur imprisoned in the Labyrinth beneath the palace of King Minos has haunted Europe's imagination since ancient times. Excavating the site in search of the truth, Arthur Evans uncovered frescoed rooms and erotic statuettes, colourful ceramics and thousands of clay tablets bearing an indecipherable script. Recounting the story of that determined quest and its extraordinary success, this book shows how Minoan civilization was restored to history.
