Knossos, also known by its romantic name of the Palace of Minos, is the largest Bronze Age archaeological site of Crete.
It is sited 5km southeast of the city of Heraklio and was discovered in 1878 by Minos Kalokairinos, a Cretan merchant and antiquarian.
Kolakairinos himself conducted the first excavations but it was not until March 16, 1900 that Sr. Arthur Evans was able to purchase the entire site and conduct massive excavations.
