Sir Arthur Evans and Heinrich Schliemann allowed themselves to much privileged in the reconstruction of Minoan art. I have to admit that at the time it may not have been as important as it is today to preserve art in its original state. In today’s world art restoration is an extremely labor intensive process and every effort is made to use proper materials. Sir Arthur Evans used modern materials and techniques and in some cases completely altered the work of art, I feel like accuracy took a backseat to aesthetics when they were restoring these works of art.
