"Professor Willetts presents the first complete picture of the civilization of Ancient Crete - one which gives full weight to its origins as well as to its post-Minoan development. He shows the important influences from the neighbouring regions of Mesopotamia and Egypt, and examines the island's development from the arrival of the Neolithic farmers during the early Bronze Age, through the spectacular Minoan civilization of the Bronze Age, down to the Dorian aristocracy of the Iron Age which ended in the Roman Conquest of the first century B.C."--BOOK JACKET.
