Elkingkaid, you make a very good point about the location differences. I think the location of Knossos and the Minoan culture on an isolated island makes a big difference in their culture. The fact of the location probably made it an undesirable place to attempt to take from any other cultures, so the Minoans enjoyed a much more peaceful existence than the Mycenaeans. I think those details that may seem minor in today’s modern world, change a lot in an ancient world. With our modern perspective, sometimes we overlook the importance of these details.
