A Troubled Island | The Minotaur's Island (Ancient Greece Documentary) | Timeline

5 968
The mysterious island of Crete has always loomed large in imagination, as the home of the Minotaur -- that monstrous creature, half-man half-bull -- imprisoned in Daedalus' labyrinth. Before Crete collapsed in fire and violence, it gave birth to Europe's first civilisation nearly 5,000 years ago, and boasted an advanced, prosperous Mediterranean civilisation with hinged doors, flush toilets, and magnificent palaces.

It was the Greco/Atlanteans who were the advanced civilization who spread knowledge to the Middle East and West
Keftiu was destroyed Your not very good at your research but excellent at WAFFLE and you twist everything to suit your delusion on Greco/Atlantean History
The problem is you don’t have many Historical Academics who have the ability to question your confusion’s

@gsmiley I have never, in my entire life, known elegance and arrogance to be confused; and for the life of me can't imagine why they would be, being, as they are, two entirely different things. And if "she can back it up", doesn't that imply that she has it? Bettany's hot alright - or used to be - but in common with overachievers everywhere, she has a fine opinion of herself: never an attractive trait. And that's all I have to say on the matter.

@Vlodec Elegance and arrogance are often confused. In the case of the latter, she can back it up.

OK Ms.B- I have been totally enamoured with you your beauty & body since your first episode on the Spartans, but your episode on the Minoans have me enamoured with your mind as well! As a Civil (structural engineer) I could have helped you Minoan “friend build earthquake resistant buildings - if only I had been around! But in this modern day,mI would be quite happy for you to show up in a Spartan Woman’s “sports outfit” for a friendly wrestling match!? Davestewart.pei@yahoo.com? Note: we have a dig on the West Coast of Canada that is 14,000 years old!
