The "Minoans" were very much the creation of the British archaeologist Sir Arthur Evans and for decades his views of "Minoan" Society dominated the world of Bronze Age scholarship.
In the past 30 years Evan's view of the Minoans as a happy and peaceful "flower-people" has been seriously challenged by modern scholarship.
This text compares and contrasts the "traditional" interpretations of those who follow Arthur Evans, and the critical work of modern scholars and archaeologists. It introduces students to the current debates and to a wide range of views and arguments.
