Slight abrasions, showing evidence for cereal cultivation and use of dairy products, seems to have been extensively robbed, and possibly suggestive of a feasting assemblage? There can only be one possible interpretation...it's time for a 'best site hut biscuit' blog post with @isobelcurwen of the heritage team! 🍪

The man on the picture is Andreou Minos Kalokerinos, an amateur archaeologist from Heraklion Crete and the man who first discovered the Minoic palace of Knossos.
Kalokerinos was very fond of the Homeric epics and believed that the mythical palace of Knossos was real.
In 1878, Minos Kalokerinos, studying the sources of evidence, purchased the kephala hill from Zerkiry Efendaki Bey. The first excavations, brought in light the warehouses and parts of the hall throne room. Subsequently the Ottoman Pasha forbids further excavations.
The amateur archaeologist nevertheless, sends samples of his findings to Athens and to European museums, wishing to spark the interest of the archaeological community.
It was the director of the Oxford University Sir Arthur Evans along with Schliemann the ones that showed interest to Kalokerinos findings and traveled to Crete where Kalokerinos guided them personally to the site.
Ιn 1894, Arthur Evans finally manages to take under his possesion the Kephala hill. Meanwhile the Ottoman authorities set Kalokerinos mansion in fire thus burning hundrends of archaeological findings.
His brother, Lysimachos Kalokerinos, who was serving as the ambassador of Britain to Crete was beheaded, his son was killed and his daughter was abducted.
Minos Kalokerinos after passing on his notes to Evans, departed for the Kingdom of Greece.
The excavations in Knossos began again in 1900, this time by the English archaeologist Sir Arthur Evans.

A group of archaeologist has discovered the world’s biggest flooded cave in Mexico. The researchers connected two underwater caverns in eastern Mexico to reveal what is believed to be the biggest flooded cave on the planet.

The discovery is an important archaeological find, as it could help shed new light on the ancient Maya civilization.

The Discovery • According to a project dedicated to the study and preservation of the subterranean waters of the Yucatan peninsula, the Great Maya Aquifer Project (GAM), the 347-km long cave was identified after months of exploring a maze of underwater channels. • During the intense exploration efforts, the group of researchers found that a cave system known as Sac Actun, which once measured around 262 km, connected with the 83-km long Dos Ojos cave system. • The gigantic passage is so big that it was actually thought to be two different cave systems. The Dos Ojos cave system spanning around 83 km was thought initially to be distinct from Sac Actun. • Under the rules of caving, however, Sac Actun now absorbs Dos Ojos and its former length to form the world’s largest known underwater cave, beating the Ox Bel Ha System that held the title earlier with a total estimated length of 270 km.
