The Minoans - In Our Time Melvyn Bragg

You'll learn a bit about the Minoans from this podcast.  You'll hear more about the skulduggery surrounding Victorian archeology.  It seems the first excavation was done in such haste that different teams competed with each other to get through the upper Roman layers and into the real Minoan deal as quickly as possible. 

Fascinating stuff, if a little hard to believe.

  1. Thank you for using that fantastic intro to the Minoans...I'll be back soon for more. This is a great site. And to boot, you use the same background as I do! Great minds....
