Watch The Ancient World with Bettany Hughes online: Episode 1 The Minoans

Bettany Hughes visits Crete to recount the story one of the greatest archaeological discoveries ever made. The tale of the Minotaur and the Labyrinth is perhaps the most compelling of all Greek myths. Just over 100 years ago, English archaeologist Arthur Evans went to the 'Minotaur's Island' to explore the roots of this myth and discovered instead a sophisticated Bronze Age civilisation that had been lost to history for thousands of years.
