    Excerpt from Excavations at Gournia, Crete

    The great palaces at Knossos and Phaestos complete each other architecturally, the former giving an elevation of three or even four stories, the latter furnishing a ground plan simple and grandiose, as it has been called by Mr. Evans. In both we see the houses of rich princes who loved luxury, who patronized the arts of builder, sculptor, and painter, and used the talents of the scribe as well. The smaller finds at Knossos and Aghia Triadha by their variety and number give us a fuller knowledge of this prehistoric civilization than we have of many a later stage of culture, but of this, as of most subjects which deserve any investigation, the more we know the more we want to know. Palaces and tombs are not sufficient; we want also the homes of the people, for without an insight into the life of the many we can not rightly judge the civilization of any period. By a singular chance a well-preserved town, dating from the earlier period of the Great Palace at Knossos (about 1800 - 1500 B. C.) and containing a large quantity of tools, pottery, and other articles of daily use, has been brought to light by the excavations of Americans people of the great democracy, as Cretans call us) at Gournia, on the north shore of the isthmus that connects the east end of the island with the rest of Crete. It is not rash to suppose that this is one of the ninety cities mentioned by Homer in the famous passage of the Odyssey quoted above.
