Explore Minoan Art & Archaeology of Crete and Santorini with Art Historian Roger Dell
May 15-28, 2017
Join Roger Dell, art historian, museum educator and Harvard lecturer, on a tour of some of the most important archaeological sites of Greece, related museum collections, and a search for the wellspring of western civilization.
This small group tour begins in Athens with an exploration of the archaeological finds from Crete and the Cycladic islands at the National Archaeological Museum and the Goulandris Museum of Cycladic Art. Next we will travel to the island of Crete, once the center of Minoan civilization, with its intriguing palace complexes thought to have been places of worship of a great-mother goddess. Then travel by sea to the spectacular island of Santorini, home of the ancient site of Akrotiri where a sophisticated Minoan settlement flourished over 3600 years ago. But like the story of Plato’s Atlantis a sudden natural catastrophe brought it to an end. The Minoan culture, Europe’s first civilization, is believed by some scholars to have been the basis for Plato’s Atlantis myth.
Group size is limited to approximately 12 participants. Early booking price valid thru November 21, 2016

This is a great trip for those interested in an active holiday and archaeology.
The focus will be on prehistoric and early Christian sites. Through them we will learn the lore and history of Ireland’s transition from paganism to Christianity.
