               I would like to announce the release of the new expanded version of
               the online thesis "The Early Minoan Colonization of Spain". This is
               just one of several free, open−content publications and articles
               available on the website. Each of which will be updated periodically
               as new confirmed archaeological evidence comes to light. This paper
               has been scrutinized by several scholars worldwide. Enjoy.



               The Early Minoan Colonization of Spain



               http://www.minoanatlantis.com/Minoan_Spain.php



               Abstract:



               The author discusses the archaeological evidence for an Aegean Minoan
               maritime colonization of southeastern Iberia. The primary causal
               factor for this was the development of the alloying technology of
               arsenical copper. The alloy's hardness and castability made the
               woodworking tools of the saw, bow drill, and lathe possible. These
               tools set the stage for the invention of the first planked wooden
               ships with keels in the Aegean that set out on voyages of exploration
               early in the 4th Millennia B.C. in search of the prestige metals of
               gold and silver resulting in the Los Millares culture in southeastern
               Spain.

               The discourse begins with the first archaeological evidence of human
               travel on the open sea before 9000 B.C. and continues with the
               development of the Aceramic Anatolian and Natufian Neolithic package,
               the radiation of the Aegean Neolithic package, the rise and fall of
               the Millaren culture, the Atlantic Tin trade with Britain during the
               Bronze Age, and ends with the catastrophic collapse of the El Argar
               culture in about 1350 B.C.



               Happy Holidays,

       An article relational with new discoveries about Minoan civilization:

       The new discoveries of Yannis and Efis Sakellaraki in "new Knossos of"
       top of Psiloreitis Zominthos:
       technological capital of Minoan New Knossos it emerges in the top of
       Psiloreiti. Is Zominthos, that will then initiate us into unknown
       aspects of Greek culture from Minoan period. Simultaneously it will
       reveal to us how could survive in altitude 1.187 an organised state
       with multifarious activities in annual base. Because in this altitude,
       in the heavy winter, they was specifically required high knowledge and
       techniques for the smooth existence of big demographic teams.

reports on the excavations at Zominthos, Crete, where an enormous
Minoan building has been found in the northern foothills of Mount Ida
(Psiloritis or í?dhi Ã’â€Sros). Short reports of archaeozoological,
archaeobotanical and pedological analyses carried out at the site are
available. The "Central Building" appears to have been built during LM
I A, at the beginning of the Neopalatial periods; about 90 integral
vases (mostly conical cups, miniature cups, kalathoi and jugs) have
been unearthed in room 11. The building was destroyed shortly after
completion during the same LM I A period and only on the eastern side
there are traces of reoccupation dating to the LM III period. Conical
vessels are the commonest ceramic shape and have been found in large
quantities in all rooms, for example ca. 135 of such vessels have been
recovered in room 1. One clay bull rhyton has been found inside a wall
niche in room 15, a similar rhyton has been found also inside a niche
in room 17; these are the only two rooms with niches. Illegal
excavations also yielded one male and one female figurines, now lost.
Nearby, a potter's workshop had been investigated in previous
excavations in the area.
