The island of Crete has been inhabited since prehistoric times. There is evidence of organized habitation which dates back to 8000 BCE, and the excavations of the 20th century have revealed a splendid civilization which ruled the island and much of the Aegean during the Bronze Age. The Minoan civilization, as it was named, is credited as the first civilization of Europe, it began around 2000 BCE and it lasted for about two millennia before it was replaced on the island by Mycenaean civilization circa 1375, and then by Classical and Hellenistic Greeks, which in turn were replaced by the Romans. The Byzantine empire and the Venetians controlled the island for a few hundred years before the Ottoman empire invaded the island. The Ottoman empire ruled the island from 1645 until 1898 when the Greeks revolted and finally re-united the island with Greece in 1913.

Culture The Beekeeper and Traveling Players The Greek language is probably the oldest in Europe, with a 4000-year oral tradition and a 3000-year written tradition. Today, Greek constitutes a large part of the vocabulary of any Indo-European language, and much of the lexicon of any scientific repertoire. Modern Greek is a southern dialect adopted as a standardized version of the language and differs substantially from Katharevousa, the artificial language loosely based on Ancient Greek that was instated by various right-wing puritanical regimes this century. Crete also accepts visitors who are interested in economical activities in the area, as well as scientists and educators, who are interested in historical files, historical monuments and museums or are interested to visit the Technical University of Crete, which is an important research center. There is also in Heraclion the university of Crete one of the most important research center in modern technology.

7. Crete Culture And People
Culture, people annd traditions Greece and Crete. Living and working in Crete. Christmas, Easter, Apokries, Carnival and Name Days in Greece.
Crete has a rich cultural history. From the Minoans through the Roman,
Turkish and German occupation to the present day democracy, traces of
Crete's history remain throughout the island: the Archaeological sites at
Knossos and Phaistos, Byzantine churches and monasteries, Venetian and
Neoclassical architecture, even minarets and mosques.
Cretan music and traditional dances play an important part in life in Crete
and will be seen and heard at most festivals and parties.
The Crete of today is very different from the Crete I first encountered 20
years ago. EU integration and modernisation has had a huge impact on
local culture and attitudes.
The youth of today are mostly independent and well educated. Girls as well as boys are encouraged to study hard and go on to university. Boys are required to do National Service from the age of 18, or after they finish their college or university studies. Family is still important and ties remain strong, although divorce rates have started rising There is, though, a contrast between town and village life. Many villages still retain the ' old ' way of life - men in the cafeneons sipping Greek coffee and raki while women gather outside their homes, crocheting and gossiping

However it was not until 5000 BC that the first signs of advanced agriculture appeared, marking the beginning of the civilization.

History of Crete
Crete has been the focus of attention for many civilisations over the centuries and the influence of conquering nations can be found in its culture, its buildings, its food, and even the look and appearance of its people.
MINOAN PALACE AT KNOSSOS Cretan history starts with the Minoan Civilisation , the first civilisation in Europe, which flourished from about 2700 to 1450 BC. The term Minoan was coined by Sir Arthur Evans, a British born archaeologist, who excavated the site at Knossos . He named the people after the mythic King Minos. The "Minoans" called themselves something different, but we don't know what.
MINOAN SNAKE GODDESS After the decline of the Minoans, Crete was invaded by a series of conquerors starting with the Myceneans. Soon, the Dorians and then later the Romans invaded. When the Roman Empire declined, the Byzantines took their turn and it was at this time that Christianity was established. The Arabs conquered Crete in the 8th century. The Byzantines took over again before they sold the Island to the Venetians in the early 13th century, who bestowed their influence until their surrender to the Turks in 1669.

An island which is very much the epitome of Greek history, Crete offers nothing short of a continual succession of seasonal festivals and things to do over the summer months. For those who want to sample these festivals, book your flights to Crete now to catch the highly anticipated annual Music Festival in Paleohora, which takes place over the first ten days of August. The festival will host concerts playing traditional and modern Greek music that will have you dancing with the jovial locals in no time! Art exhibitions take place alongside while an X-Factor style song contest wraps up the celebrations with the winners singing for the appreciative crowds. If you are feeling particularly brave, perhaps you can get involved! Paleohara is a very Cretan town that still retains its Greek rythms. The old name was Selino Kastelli from the castle built in 1279 by the Venetians. In 1539, the Pirate Barborassa conquered the castle and destroyed it, though it still survives in ruins. It is interesting to explore its narrow Venetian streets which now shelter tavernas, bistros and cafes that will serve the local speciality, Spetsofai, a spicy sausage casserole style dish they make there with some fresh crusty bread. Wash it all down with a couple of bottles of cold Mythos while listening to the dancing and laughter in the background.
