Minoan Crete (Life in Ancient Lands Series)

By Mellersh,H.E.L.

New York: Putnam., 1967. "Though it was one of the greatest and most distinct of ancient civilizations, practically nothing was known of Minoan Crete until the present century. It is, in a sense, the complete creation of the archaeologist s spade and the scholar"s detective imagination. Their detailed investigations have revealed a rich culture with such brilliance, luxury, oddity and gaiety that it has invited comparison with Paris at its peak, and this despite the fact that its few written records are little more than duty rosters and lists of quartermasters and tax-collectors. Yet Crete, like all civilizations, seemed to possess its own inherent seeds of destruction. H. E. L. Mellersh weaves a fascinating story of the flowering of the Minoan people, a story not in isolation-for the Minoans were of the Bronze Age and a Mediterranean people. A distinctive feature of the book are the superb illustrations-16 pages of plates in full colour, and 76 black and white illustrations fully integrated with the text. " 143p. plates some col) illus.index (bookplate of previous owner). 1st.US Ed... Hard Cover. Near Fine/Near Fine.

Secret of Crete

By Wunderlich,Hans Georg

Athens: Efstathiadis., 1974. "Hans Wunderlich is a geologist who happened to be in Crete in 1970, when he took the opportunity of visiting Sir Arthur Evan's celebrated reconstruction of the so-called Palace of King Minos at Knossos - the legendary labyrinth where Theseus once defeated the dreaded Minotaur. This chance visit drew him into one of the greatest archaeological mysteries of all time, for one contradiction struck him after another in the 'established' interpretations of the Minoan culture. His geologist's eye found clues that the early arcaeologists had missed, the technical man asked questions to which no-one seemed to have the answer. He soon concluded that what he was gazing at was not a palace at all, but something more sombre and perhaps even more significant. This book is the author's attempt to resolve the paradoxes that have obsessed the archaeological world ever since Evan's spectacular find." An interesting theory ."that the Palace of King Minos was not the bustling centre of gay courtly life but was,instead, a necropolis - a city of the dead " 368p. illus.diagrs.maps.bibliography.index..
