The Minoans were the earliest civilization that was associated with Greece and it was in the island of Crete. This civilization was discovered by Sir Arthur Evans. The Palace at Knossos was thought to be the palace of King Minos. The Minoan civilization was named after king Minos. The palace of Knossos was very big and it was decorated with many things. The Minoan civilization even had systems of writing which were Linear A and Linear B!

Wow thats amazing, the palace had many private living rooms for the royal family and workshops. Their workshops consisted in making decorated vases, ivory figurines, and jewelry. They even had bathroom!!! That's really crazy because it must've been a great advance in technology. They seemed to be very artistic, I find it really interesting. Keep up the good work! thumbs up
