... was built to lock the Minotaur in. Today there is just some stones and other pieces of rubble but from what I imagined I think the palace would be really impressive especially for something that was built 4000 years ago. Unfortunately a British archeologist, Arthur Evans, in the 1900's found it and tried to recreate the palace how he thought it should be. Modern archeologists now think he got it a lot wrong. At the villa we packed our bags because we are leaving ...

On our second day in Heraklion, we went to Knossos to see the (remains of) Minoan Palace. It was originally built in 1900BC and some of that survives, but most of the remains date from a rebuild in 1700BC - still a long time ago! Knossos itself was an important city in ancient times and ...
