1917 Scholar Writes New Mythology,
This review is from: Crete and Prehellenic Myths and Legends (Myths & legends) (Paperback)
Sir Arthur Evans began excavating ancient Crete in 1900.
"Based lagely on circumstantial evidence such as the vivid wall art and the startling Goddess iconography, popularizers like Mackenzie built an entire new set of myths about the ancient Cretans."
A fascinating account of early scholarship that surrounded turn of the century archeology. Chapter V is "Crete as the Lost Atlantis." You get the drift.
