Archaeoastronomy at Knossos, Crete, in Greece - A New Significant Discovery by William Glyn-Jones - LexiLine Journal 334

We are quite proud [at the Ancient World Blog] to announce and publish for the first time a major archaeoastronomical discovery by William Glyn-Jones: his astronomical interpretation of the famous fresco of the "Bull and the Bull-Leaping Gymnasts" at the Palace of Knossos, Crete, the largest of the Minoan Palaces, famed for its restoration by Sir Arthur Evans.

We believe that this discovery by William Glyn-Jones, as followed here by other discoveries about the ancient astronomy of Knossos, will ultimately greatly increase world interest in the already highly regarded and mysterious Minoan Culture of Greece....

Our next posting presents the initial article on this subject as submitted to us by William Glyn-Jones, and in subsequent postings we will present our e-mail correspondence with Glyn-Jones, which will result in our presentation of additional significant archaeoastronomical discoveries and observations arising out of that fruitful and interesting discourse.
