... they spend the next 45 minutes getting mixed together and heated. After that they will separate the olive oil off the top watery mash. The oil is weighed and the remaining skin and seed extract becomes a brown mixture used to feed livestock. Out of 42 bags we had 2,000 Kg of olives that produced 318 liters of oil.

There were several palaces on Crete and survived for about 3,000 years, before the volcanic eruption of Santorini whipped out the whole island around 1370 ...

... 3 feet in diameter at widest point. The ability to make these is perplexing to me. It obviously started on a wheel, but I wonder how it was finished and with what tools.

Both sides are filled, but there are debates as what they mean. It ...
