Secrets of the Dead
Season 8 Episode 2 | 52m 32s
5000 ago, the Minoans, Europe's first great civilization, flourished on the island of Crete. The sophisticated inhabitants were the first Europeans to use a written language and construct paved roads. But inexplicably, at the height of their power, the Minoans were wiped from the pages of history. The reason for their disappearance has perplexed historians for generations -- until now.
