Knossos – Excavations (Crete)

If one is happy to accept any truth in Greek Mythology then this is where King Minos had a labyrinth built by Icarus to contain the legendary – Minotaur – half man half bull. Icarus and his son Daedalus were also the first to fly with their wax wings.

Knossos was destroyed, probably as a result of the eruption of Thira (Santorini) some time in the sixteenth century BCE.
