This is the exciting story of the discovery of Knossos, the ancient lost palace of King Minos on the island of Crete. In the early 20th century, English archaeologist Arthur Evans pieced together myth and material remains to bring to light the Minoan civilization. He commissioned the re-creation of parts of the palace. These reconstructions, along with art and artifacts, are featured here. 174 illustrations, 85 in color. 1 map.
