Thoroughly researched, Rodney Castleden's Minoans: Life in Bronze Age Crete here sues the results of recent research to produce a comprehensive new vision of the peoples of Minoan Crete.

Since Sir Arthur Evans rediscovered the Minoans in the early 1900s, we have defined a series of cultural traits that make the ‘Minoan personality’: elegant, graceful and sophisticated, these nature lovers lived in harmony with their neighbours, while their fleets ruled the seas around Crete. This, at least, is the popular view of the Minoans. But how far does the later work of archaeologists in Crete support this view?

Drawing on his experience of being actively involved in research on landscapes processes and prehistory for the last twenty years, Castleden writes clearly and accessibly to provide a text essential to the study of this fascinating subject.

Review: Minoan Life in Bronze Age Crete

User Review  - Ender Wiggin - Goodreads

This really good, very informative. He frequently mentions artwork or pictures and doesn't include them though, which is really annoying! Read full review

Review: Minoans: Life in Bronze Age Crete

User Review  - Emily - Goodreads

Not well organized at all, dry as an algebra lecture. The shortcoming isn't entirely the author's fault, there isn't much to work with. However, overall, I wasn't impressed, and I quit partway through. Read full review
