Clay Tablet from Crete Showing Minoan Writing
The Minoans (Cretans) are named after a series of kings called Minos. Along with the Indo-European Hellenes who invaded the Peloponnesus (the Greek peninsula) from the north, the Minoans are the ancestors of the ancient Greeks. While Linear B (the later version of Minoan writing) was deciphered by Michael Ventris in 1952, Linear A remains undeciphered. Click here to enlarge.
