... storied building, spanning 5 1/2 acres, and was destroyed twice in its history, once from fire (roughly in 1700 BC), the second and later destruction from a major earthquake which ravaged Crete. Two factors are thought to have contributed to the end of the Minoan: the possible eruption of the volcano Thera and the rise of the Mycenean civilization upon Crete.
