Excerpt from Crete in the Greek Tradition

N ow that the excavations at Cnossus, Phaestus, Hagia Triada, and other places in Crete have given us certain definite facts about the earliest Cretan civilization, it is perhaps worth While to examine again the mass of traditions and myths clustering about the island. What information concerning the early state of Crete did the later Greeks possess, how does this square with the archaeological evidence, does it help us to explain any of the results of the excavations? These are the questions which must be kept in mind While going over the traditions.
