Book summary

This book assesses what we really know about the Minoans' life and times, defining the essential characteristics of a distinctive Cretan culture and setting this within its contemporary historical context which included not only Greece but the Eastern Mediterranean and Egypt. The author discusses the major themes of daily life such as social and economic organization, agriculture, architecture and religion, drawing upon the latest archaeological research including examples of Linear B and the evidence of recent excavations to paint a broad chronological picture of a fascinating and important culture. J. Lesley Fitton is an Assistant Keeper in the Department of Greek & Roman Antiquities in the British Museum. [via]
