A lecture titled “Crete and the first european civilisation. Uncovering the Bronze Age Minoans” will take place on the 27th. A bit of a refresher Ancient Crete is most likely to be associated with the Minotaur. This man-bull creature lived and was confined to the “labyrinth”, constructed for King Minos by the architect Daedalus. Crete itself is considered as the craddle of European civilization. It is thought that Crete was inhabited from the 7th millennium BC onwards. The fall of Knossos (the Zagreb of Crete) took place circa 1400s BC. Superb palaces, houses, roads, paintings and sculptures remain. Crete in pop-culture, then and now. Many famous figures have been referring to Crete through the ages: Homer, Dante, Picasso… The Minotaur is even more popular, having been featured in Godzilla, Batman and Duck-tales. You can read an interview with Dr. Helena Thomas coordinator of the conference on page 6.

Special Section: an interview with Dr. Helena Thomas Please help keep this information current firstname.lastname@example.org 5 Why is ancient Crete important for us today; what did the Cretans invent that we are still using today, laws, principles, language, etc... In order to define a distinguished cultural group as a civilisation, three main factors need to be present: urban structures with numerous population; 2. monumental architecture; 3. use of a script. During the Bronze Age in Europe, Crete was the first place where all these criteria were satisfied, which is why it is not wrong to say that this island gave birth to civilisation in Europe. With its three main scripts - Cretan Hieroglyphic, Linear A and Linear B - Crete was a also cradle of European literacy. The former two scripts, still undeciphered, were used for recording a so-called Minoan language, spoken on Crete before the arrival of Mycenaeans. What would be one of the many fascinating aspects about Crete? Cretans were the most prominent sailors in the Eastern Mediterranean, which is why this period is generally described as Minoan Thalassocracy. Minoans traded with Asia Minor, the coast of Levant, Egypt, and most other Greek islands and its Mainland. Their main export goods were wine, olive oil and impressive pottery, whereas they mostly imported raw and exotic materials, such as copper, gold, silver, ivory, etc. From these they would produce exquisite objects of art (jewelry, seals, etc.), recognisable all over Eastern Mediterranean. They also mastered fresco-painting, luxuriously adorning walls of their palaces and villas. Minoan techniques and artistic motifs were admired by contemporary cultures and widely imitated by subsequent Mycenaeans. We all know the Minotaur dwelt in a labyrinth built for King Minos and designed by the architect Daedalus . What are the interpretations of this myth? Whoever had a chance to visit a palace of Knossos, or even look at its plan, would soon realise that its complex corridors and hundreds of rooms remind us of a labyrinth. The well-known labyrinth which Daedalus built as a dwelling place for the monster Minotaur, an offspring of a sinful intercourse of Minos’ wife Pasifaia and a sacred bull, was never discovered. It appears, therefore, that such a complicated architectural plan of the Knossian palace gave rise to that myth. Ancient Greeks were prone to coining myths in order to explain mysterious occurrences from distant past, and this may be one such example: extremely complicated organisation of space in a long-time-ago inhabited palace at Knossos may have prompted later inhabitants of Crete to create such a myth.
