Index to the Palace of Minos

Nature volume 140, page 486 (18 September 1937) | Download Citation



PUBLICATION of an index in a volume separate from the main work would not in the ordinary course call for special comment, beyond note of the fact of issue. The index of "The Palace of Knossos" stands in a different category. The fact that the history of the Palace, as reconstructed in Sir Arthur's excavations, covers the whole of the Minoan age, and the scale in range and detail on which the index has been compiled, not only make it an indispensable aid to the use of the book, of which it is an appendage, but also constitute it a guide to the history of the period and its civilization at'large.
