Since the “Renaissance“ of Minoan civilization within the initial 20th century the reception and consumption of the so-called Minoan culture has become pervasive in every corner of Crete. Even though the legendary island had an extensive relevance during Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine times, it always comes to the Bronze Age when highlighting the Cretan’s cultural heritage and local pride. The physical surroundings of archaeological sites and artefacts play a huge role in developing local identity. As well in primary as in secondary school and the Greek Lykeion the Bronze Age of Crete is taught. In this context the following article analyses school books and the contents of teaching in order to prove pedagogical objectivity and actuality. Can school books in Greece be objective?
