TranscriptEdit

Named after the Legendary King Minos, the Minoans were the root that grew into classical Greece. They were a major naval and trading power, which allowed them to spread their culture all across the Mediterranean and Europe.

Minoan

Name: The Minoan Civilization

Continent: Europe/Mediterranean

Time Period: 2700-1450 BCE

Succeeded/Conquered By: Mycenaean Greeks

Currently: Greece

Sea power requires fearlessness, to cast off from dry land and sail out into the unknown. And the Minoans were nothing if not fearless, with a confidence that bordered on arrogance.


But the very thing that brought them their power – the sea – became the thing that caused their downfall, by spreading them too thin and making them vulnerable to their neighbors. And so the Minoans fell, and became just another island in the culture of Ancient Greece.


The Minoans knew - the unknown is nothing to fear. To the contrary, discovery, bravery - attacking your fears - is how you keep score in life. In the end, it's the only thing that matters.
