Knossos. 2007. The Palace of Knossos at sunrise, looking southwest. From the dawn of Minoan civilization, Knossos was the principal Bronze Age center in Crete (circa 2700 to 1450 BC). The legendary King Minos lived here. The colonnaded North Entrance in foreground leads to the ceremonial Central Court at left. The central building contains the Throne Room. At upper left, the Horns of Consecration represent the sacred bull of the Minoans. Arthur Evans excavated and partially restored Knossos, beginning in 1900.
