Unearthing Crete’s Minoan past on Mt Psiloritis


Archaeologists working on the small Zominthos plateau in the foothills of Mount Psiloritis on Crete discovered a tablet inscribed in Linear A – a writing system used by the ancient Minoans from around 1800 to 1450 BCE – in what was once an archive of a building complex, during this season’s excavations. The tablet was used for accounting purposes.
