9781842122211: The Find of a Lifetime: Sir Arthur Evans and the Discovery of Knossos

The obsessions of a dapper Victorian gentleman led to one of the most breathtaking discoveries in archeology: the Palace of Minos at Knossos. As the brilliant curator of the famed Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, Sir Evans was already well known when, at 50, he embarked on his most celebrated role. Less than a month after the first spadeful of earth was turned on the site, he located a labyrinthine palace that clearly had been the seat of a fabulously wealthy and powerful culture. Here is the truth and the legend behind the momentous find. 6 1/4 X 9 1/4. 20 B&W Illustrations
