In this marvelous, scholarly study of the myth and meaning on Minoan Crete, Gere illuminated both the original excavations of Sir Arthur Evans at Knossos and how this ancient civilization captured the Western imagination as an idealized society. Gere (The Tomb of Agamemnon) opens the book with a chapter on the " fabulously wealthy, astonishingly polyglot merchant" Heinrich Schliemann, whose work at Troy inspired Evans.
