For centuries, stories persisted of a prosperous, sophisticated civilization on the island of Crete that dominated the waters of the Aegean 2,000 years before Christ. Homeric tales recalled a sinister labyrinth, a powerful king and fascinating people who revelled in life.

In 1900, archaeologist Arthur Evans uncovered the enormous Palace of Knossos and evidence of an astonishing society that mirrored many aspects of the legends. Stunning murals, beautiful jewelry and massive vases shed light on the enchanting world of the Minoans and the extent of trade with Mycenae and Egypt.

A vibrant people skilled in sailing, agriculture and writing, the Minoans are also something of a mystery. What drew Evans to this Aegean island, and what caused the sudden decline of the dazzling civilization he discovered?

This DVD is accompanied by a beautifully illustrated 24-page hardcover book. Watch and discover the secrets of cultures that thrived for centuries and then disappeared, and at the same time read the captivating book packed with intriguing facts, illustrations, photography and more.

Produced by Cinenova Productions for the Discovery Channel.
