The rich heritage of the Greek history spanning back four and a half thousand years has sown the harsh grounds around the Aegean with stones and artifacts that blossom for centuries.
This is a collection of thoughts, images and resources from Greek Archaeological sites intended as a reference for a scholar, and as an introduction to bring those who cannot be there closer.
The Acropolis with its rich history and archaeological significance has become the embodiment of all ancient Greek ideals.

Crete is a land endowed with a rich historical heritage which spans more than nine millennia since its fertile, secure, and strategically placed land mass has been inhabited since the seventh millennium BC. Cultures on the island have sown the land with ancient palaces, cities, villas, and a plethora of exquisite artifacts which date back to the Minoan era. As a visitor I marveled at the unique cultural heritage of Minoan culture and I created several pages around the experiences and pictures from my visits.
