Scenes on Sunday ~ Knossos

The last Western Society to worship female powers was Minoan Crete.

The palace at Knossos dates from 1700 BC

Knossos is Europe’s oldest city, dating from perhaps 7,000 BC

Many legends surround Knossos ~ the Labyrinth, the Minotaur, Daedalus and Icarus.

Minoan Art is Fabulous

The site was eventually abandoned in Roman times.
