Crete: Emerging Cities

Crete: Emerging Cities

Knossos Crete

WHAT: The island of Crete is the largest Greek island as well as an immense vessel of ancient history and culture. The Museum of Cycladic Art offers an intriguing exhibit complete with artifacts brought from the island itself, some freshly excavated, and tracks the rise and fall of three major cities: Aptera, Eleutherna, and Knossos. Museum director Professor Nikos Stampolidis says, “This exhibition is about cities that no longer exist, erased from memory, save perhaps for their name, which persists, often corrupted.”

WHEN: Until April 30

WHERE: Museum of Cycladic Art
