Publisher:  Facts on File Publications
Copyright 1953

This new, lavishly illustrated edition of The Bull of Minos tells the story of two great archeologists -- Heinrich Scliemann, the inspired amateur, and Sir Arthur Evans, the complete professional -- and of their vital discoveries of Mycenaean and Minoan civilizations.  Their story is told as part of Leonard Cottrell's own travelogue, as he journeys to the sites uncovered by the archeologists and in his exciting reports evokes a stimulating glimpse of the world of the Homeric epics.

In this edition of Cottrell's modern classic:

* Fight the Menelaus to win Helen back from Troy.

* Witness Clytemnesta's deception of Agamemnon on his return from the Trojan Wars.

* Join Theseus in defeating the Minotaur in the Labyrinth of King Minos

* Barter with Minoan sailors in Egypt and Asia Minor.

Complete with more than 100 color and black and white illustrations and an authoritative introduction by Peter Levi, The Bull of Minos offers a thoroughly captivating personal journey to the lands of ancient kings, warriors, scholars, sailors, artists and artisans.
