Controversy at Knossos!
Sir Arthur Evans was an archeologist who did excavations at the palace of Knossos in Crete. He decided that it would be a good idea to restore some of the frescoes and architecture so that people could see what it might have looked like in Ancient days. He used historical information and (some people think) a lot of imagination. Below are some pictures that I took when I visited the palace several years ago. I think you will agree that it's quite different from other buildings we've seen. The bold colors are interesting and beautiful. But, no one is sure if this is how the buildings really looked back then or if Evans was just making things up.
