Calendar House: Clues to Minoan Time from Knossos Labyrinth

Calendar House presents evidence that a particular configuration of lunar, solar and stellar astronomy was important in Minoan life and especially visible in Late-period iconography. It incorporates critical feedback received over several years from archaeologists around the world.

Important recent works have led the way into Minoan astronomy: examples include alignment-studies by Lucy Goodison and the Blombergs/Goran Henriksson, articles by Alexander Macgillivray, Emilia Banou and Marianna Ridderstad, and books including Nanno Marinatos’ Minoan Kingship and the Solar Goddess. All of them include what non-specialists need to see and judge for themselves, and House works the same way.
