Today we went to Knossos, the birth place of the legends of the Minotaur and Labyrinth. We learned about the ancient civilization of the Minoans and their powerful navy. They dominated trade routes and were feared by all. Surprisingly, the ruins show no evidence of barriers meaning that they were very secure in their homes. Trey actually were a peaceful people who were never challenged by others. They were so strong that they stood for thousands of years and eventually fell to natural disasters. We then stood on the oldest road Europe and followed it to explore the neighborhood.
