The Ancient Minoans: The 1st Civilization In Europe | Island Of Minotaur | Odyssey

2

The mysterious island of Crete has always loomed large in imagination as the home of the Minotaur- that monstrous creature, half-man half-bull- imprisoned in Daedalus's labyrinth.

Before Crete collapsed in fire and violence, it gave birth to Europe's first civilisation nearly 5,000 years ago and boasted an advanced, prosperous Mediterranean civilisation.

Odyssey is your journey into the world of Ancient History, from the dawn of Mesopotamia to the fall of Rome. We'll bring you only the best documentaries that journey into the mysteries and ruins of worlds long lost.
