Sir Arthur Evans, the British archaeologist, characterized the Bronze Age culture of Crete as Minoan, after the legendary King Minos. From the material he excavated at Knossos, Evans devised a chronological scheme consisting of nine periods for Minoan civilization on Crete. His Early, Middle, and Late Minoan periods, each with three subdivisions, roughly followed the tripartite division of Egyptian history in the Old Middle , and New Kingdoms . Our knowledge of Early Minoan Crete comes primarily from burials and a number of excavated settlement sites. Artistic works of this period indicate that advances were made in gem engraving, stoneworking (especially vases), metalworking, and pottery. Terracotta bowls on high pedestals appeared and burnishing tools were used for decoration.
Around 1900 B.C., during the Middle Minoan period, Minoan civilization on Crete reached its apogee with the establishment of centers, called palaces, that concentrated political and economic power, as well as artistic activity, and may have served as centers for the redistribution of agricultural commodities. Major palaces were built at Knossos and Mallia in the northern part of Crete, at Phaistos in the south, and at Zakros in the east. These palaces are distinguished by their arrangement around a paved central court and sophisticated masonry. In general, there were no defensive walls, although a network of watchtowers punctuating key roads on the island has been identified. The walls and floors of the palaces were often painted and colorful frescoes depicted rituals or scenes of nature. There were sanitary facilities as well as provisions for adequate lighting and ventilation. Living quarters of the palaces, like the better Minoan houses, were spacious.

Heraklion, Crete The vertical growing of strawberries hydroponically in perlite enables the grower to make maximum use of his greenhouse and to take advantage of the controlled atmosphere for an extended growing period. A A vertical growing system was employed and four varieties of strawberries were tested. These were: Brighton, Douglas, Tioga and Tuft. The System The vertical system employed consisted of square containers of expanded polyethylene having a volume of .1 cuft (3.3 liters) each. Containers were stacked on top of each other diagonally so as to form a column. A plastic pipe of 1/2 in (12 mm) diameter was passed through the containers to secure the columns and the columns were suspended from horizontal wires from the glass house roof. Each column was composed of six containers and four planting pockets were created at the corner of each container. An entire column thus contained 24 plants. Nutrient/Water Supply A drip irrigation system was employed to provide nutrient and water. Drip tubes were inserted in the 1st, 3rd and 5th container from the top of each column. Nutrient was collected at the base of each column and recycled. Solution was provided to each column 2-4 times per day depending on weather. Concentrations of the elements in the nutrient solution are shown in the following table.

Minoan civilization
The Minoans were an ancient civilisation on what is now Crete (in the Mediterranean ), during the Bronze Age , prior to classical Greek culture. The Minoans were primarily a mercantilist people engaged in overseas trade. Many historians and archaeologists believe that the Minoans were highly involved in the Bronze Age 's important tin trade (tin being used for manufacture of bronze ). The decline of Minoan civilization and the decline in use of bronze tools seem to be correlated.

The civilization is named after King Minos , who in Greek mythology was said to be the King of Crete. Some believe that Minos either figuratively represents the civilization or is a dynastic name. Major cities of Minoan culture were Knossos , Phaestos, and Mallia. The Cretan myths and the discoveries of Heinrich Schliemann encouraged the excavations carried out in , when Sir Arthur Evans started excavations on the palace in Knossos . His methods caused some controversy, because he not only excavated but attempted to reconstruct the buildings.

OF COLORADO Crete and the Trojan War: Going Beyond Homer and Sir Andrew Evans
April 12, 1999 By: Halford W. Haskell, Professor of Classics, Southwestern University, Georgetown, Texas This event was co-sponsored with the Archaeological Institute of America, Denver Society Professor Haskell dealt with the question of what we can know about Crete in the period of the Trojan War. This is really the question of the relationship between mainland Greek culture and the Minoan culture of Crete. Professor Haskell dealt first with evidence from Homer. Homer indicates that Crete was prosperous and contributed many ships to the expedition under a unified command. But Homer is writing some 500 years after the event, Professor Haskell points out, and his evidence has to be taken with care. Archeology on Crete received a major impetus from Sir Artur Evans who excavated Knossos and coined the term "Minoan." He discovered the now well-known fact of the destruction of the palaces by fire. A destruction which we now know cannot be due to the explosion of Thira to the north, as that explosion is earlier. But the initial destruction is followed by a new dynasty, and a second destruction. How to date all of this? A bitter academic controversy broke out over dating of the Linear B tables, a key to dating the sites. Should those tablets be 15th century BC or 13th century? Professor Haskell recounted the history of the battle.

Women in the Aegean
Minoan Snake Goddess Christopher L. C. E. Witcombe 10. Women in Minoan Culture There is plenty of archaeological evidence to indicate that women occupied an important if not dominant position within the practice of Minoan religion. A principal goddess would appear to have been Potnia ("lady" or "mistress"). The name usually occurs, but not always, with some qualification such as Potnia of Grain, Potnia of Horses, or Potnia of the Labyrinth. Potnia may have been a female form of the male god Potidas or Poteidan, from which was later derived the name Poseidon (a Greek god closely associated with Crete in later times). A female form of Poseidon also occurs in the name Posidaija. Another goddess was apparently named Diktynna and another Britomartis ('Sweet Virgin'). Largely on the basis of what appear to be cult shrines and sanctuaries, the existence of other goddesses have been posited - a goddess of the caves, a tree goddess, a dove goddess, a snake goddess - but it remains unclear whether or not the Minoans worshipped them as individual, specialized divinities or as aspects of a single Great Goddess. The predominance of goddesses (or of the Great Goddess) is attested to by the dominant role played by priestesses in religious ceremonies and the presence of women in ritual contexts. Women far outnumber priests and male attendants, for example, in the paintings on the four sides of the Aghia Triadha sarcophagus.

74. Destination: Crete
On the surface, crete may seem typically Greek. But a deeper digreveals that crete s culture is unique. The island became part
From CNN TravelGuide Contributor Steve Nettleton IRAKLION, Greece (CNN) The power of Poseidon still pounds the shores of Crete, a land one 17th century English traveler called "the garden of the universe." Crete is where gods were born, where myths flourished, and where Europe's earliest civilization the Minoans rose from the Mediterranean. According to Greek mythology, Crete was the birthplace of Zeus, chief of the gods. And it was here that a half-man, half-bull the Minotaur devoured young men and women in the Labyrinth, until it was killed by the warrior Theseus. The roots of these legends lie shrouded in historical mystery. But ruins of entire cities leave little doubt that an advanced people once ruled here, centuries before the Greeks and Romans. On the surface, Crete may seem typically Greek. But a deeper dig reveals that Crete's culture is unique. The island became part of Greece in 1913 before that, Romans, Byzantines, Venetians and Turks had been its rulers. Crete is the largest of the Greek islands, stretching more than 150 miles (242 kilometers) east to west. A short trip inland seems to contradict the fact that it's an island. Mountains reaching as high as 8,000 feet (2,438 meters) partition Crete into distinct regions, each with its own local flavor. Iraklion is Crete's largest city, and feels like it. The congested streets and busy port are a sharp contrast to quiet towns nearby.

There are few places in the world with so rich and diverse an artistic and cultural history as Greece. In terms of archeology there are artifacts that are 200,000 years old, while architecturally Greece boasts Minoan and Dorian ruins dating back almost four millennia. Greece is also where drama originated, so there are plenty of ancient theatres to pick your way through Museums
Greece is bursting at the seams with museums. Almost every single city, town, village, historical site, settlement and hole in the hedge has an archeological museum which details the archeological and historical significance of its surroundings Historical Sites
There is certainly no shortage of these in Greece. Every city has their own specialties, like the Acropolis and the Ancient Agora in Athens, the Oracle at Delphi, the Palace of the Grand Masters in Rhodes Town, and so on. There are far too many to list here. It is suggested you get hold of a tourist map from the Greek Tourist Organization (EOT) which sets out all the ancient, Byzantine and medieval sites throughout the country. But some of the major historical sites you should make a special effort to see are listed below: The Acropolis, Athens

The red porgy, Pagrus pagrus, is a protogynous hermaphrodite sparid of increasing interest to the aquaculture industry. The first efforts for the intensive culture of the red porgy started at the IMBC in 1989, when broodstock and fry were caught from the wild and acclimated at on-land installations. The present work describes data on i) reproduction (study of gametogenesis, age of sex reversal and sexual maturity, spawning strategy), ii) larval rearing (stocking density, feeding regime, water quality, timing of the developmental stages), iii) grow-out (growth rate, conversion index, mortality, water requirements), and iv) disease problems related to the intensive farming at all stages of production.
