Knossos - "Throne Room"

 

Largely reconstructed - anything in stone is original, including the throne - the fresco is a reconstruction.  The animals in the fresco are griffins.

 

En route to the Netherlands, by ferry to Amsterdam tonight - further commentary likely to be haphazard.

A compact throne room...
Tom Wilson: It may have extended beyond the pillars on the left - I can't remember.

This is just bizarre, but I suppose it was a different world then..

Going on vacation to Astridland Tom?
Tom Wilson: A very different world, Chris - and yes, on hols.

I wonder just how true to original it is? One reason that I've no interest in going to Stonehenge is that it's only a reconstruction.
Tom Wilson: It seems to be fairly true, Alan - and I don't think Stonehenge can be called a reconstruction - the stones are original, their positions original, and the fallen stones have not been replaced. A reconstruction would be a complete reassembly of the stones, as shown in some theoretical reconstructions.
This works quite well as a reconstruction. Enjoy Amsterdam
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Bill - we'll be based just outside Haarlem - good train connections to everywhere else smile
