Arthur Evans

Arthur Evans was born in 1851 and educated at Harrow School, Brasenose College, Oxford and the University of Göttingen. He is most famous for his work on the palace of Knossos in Crete, which he identified as the centre of the thriving civilisation he dubbed 'Minoan', but he was also passionately interested in the history and archaeology of ancient Illyria and travelled extensively in the area as Balkan correspondent for the Manchester Guardian in the 1880s. From 1884 to 1908 he was Curator of the Ashmolean Museum at Oxford and his numerous books include The Palace of Minos, Scripta Minoa and The Adriatic Slavs and The Overland Route to Constantinople.
