Knossos - Royal quarters

 

Part of what are thought to be the royal residence part of the Palace, which was below the central court on the east wing.  The reconstructions are highly contentious among archaeologists, but they certainly give a good impression of what the Palace must have looked like in its heyday.

Jolis détails.
Good impressions are...good, Tom. Without them we have little to go by, right?

Can you imagine how this palace looked when it was just finished, Tom. I know the video, however to be inside and walk around, it must be beyond everything.

I guess the colours and designs are authentic, Tom?

I like the idea of restoring some parts of ancient sites Tom.
If those colours are authentic, Tom, the restorers have done a fantastic job.

i think that is the risk since they may never really know with full certainty, Tom? but i like the ideas and thoughts created by this reconstruction.

the colors are extraordinary
I think I am on his side. These reconstructions really give a flavour of what the building must have been like
