Summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Minoans, then pay attention...

The Minoans continue to be an intriguing subject for modern audiences because they are like a puzzle missing half of its pieces. Individuals have a rough idea of what it might look like, but there could be surprises no one even thinks of because all traces of the image are gone. For archaeologists, historians, tourists, scholars, fans of mythology, and students of the ancient world, the Minoans are this broken puzzle.

The Minoans were an ancient civilization that built their settlements on islands in the Aegean Sea. They lived almost 5,000 years ago and left behind traces of their lives, but not enough for people to create a complete picture. 

Ever since the early 20th century, the Minoans have been a subject of interest, thanks to the discoveries and excavations by Sir Arthur Evans, a British archaeologist who found the first Minoan ruins and named them after the mythological King Minos and his Minotaur.

In Minoans: A Captivating Guide to an Essential Bronze Age Society in Ancient Greece Called the Minoan Civilization, you will discover topics such as:

  • Where and When Did the Minoans Live?
  • Known History of the Minoans before the Mycenaeans
  • Society, Culture, and Daily Life
  • Trade and Shipbuilding on the Mediterranean Sea
  • Language and Linear A
  • The Potential Predecessors of Greek Religion
  • Art
  • Architecture
  • Theories About the Collapse of Civilization
  • And much, much more!

Good Details

A book that provides some details that complement some other more current books, in its time a good job. Cheap, good buy.

Incredible Book

The Minoans influenced a lot of other cultures, mainly the Greeks. This book won't be able to tell you everything about the Minoans, only what we know about them at the present time.

Fascinating

I have always been fascinated by the history of Ancient Greece and Egypt. This book is pretty comprehensive which is quite impressive because it is not actually all that long.

You will learn a lot.

You will learn a lot. In my case, I read in small doses rather than all at once. Some things you may know, some you may not. It is a perfect book for History fans though and covers so much with great detail.
