"greek islands crete" Discussed on Conspiracy Theories

"Your warlike men in a body sank into the earth and the island of Atlantis in like manner disappeared in the depths of the sea and quote. A few key details from the story have been aggressively researched in the search for Atlantis. The first point of contention is the date nine thousand years ago. The oldest known civilizations are dated around the three thousand BC era. If Plato's date was correct that would mean that there was an advanced culture living six thousand years before the earliest evidence, we have of human civilization scholars usually point to this discrepancy as evidence that the story is fictional. And if what we've heard about Atlantis so far seems within the realm of historical possibility Plato second dialogue criticize paints a picture of Atlantic civilization. That sounds much more myth than fact. The critics dialogue focuses on the mythical origins of Atlantis and what the island was like before it disappeared under the see Plato's character. Critics explains that Atlantis was ruled by the Greek God Poseidon, he married a mortal name Klay Atto and she lived on a hill at the center of the island in the planes that surrounded the hill beside and created cold and warm water springs to make sure his progeny never suffered for water elephants roam the massive plane, which was two hundred and thirty miles in width the planes were surrounded by mountains, which protected Klay toe in her descendants from the harsh of north wind beside an also created five perfect circles around the hills alternating between land and water in a sort of bullseye fashion to protect against invaders the two outermost rings of water and land or each about three Stade's at their widest point the middle to rings were too. Stade's wide and the final ring of water around the hill was one statewide the stayed is an ancient unit of measurement that continues to boggle modern scholars it's generally agreed to equal about six hundred feet. But some ancient writers used the term to refer to distances of three hundred feet. If we assume one stayed equals six hundred feet, the total diameter of the island of Atlantis would be over four hundred miles across surrounded by another mile of circular rings for reference that's more than twice the size of the largest Greek island Crete, this massive size suggest the islands. Description is symbolic instead of historically accurate. Maybe maybe not moving on the during Poseidon Klay toes marriage. She bore five sets of twins all sons as the sons became men beside and distributed the land equally between the ten princes with the. Oldest receiving the central hill. His name was atlas and the empire took his name becoming Atlantis at this point Poseidon deemed, Atlantis the perfect society. The government was ruled peacefully by the ten princes and as time progressed by ten descendants of the original rulers, the leaders met every fifth and then sixth year to discuss matters of state. They would begin these meetings by capturing and slaughtering a bull and offering it up as a sacrifice to Poseidon after the sacrifice the leaders pledged. They would never attempt to overthrow each other. And if one did the others would all rally together to defeat mutineer? But even though Atlantis grew prosperous and strong the prince's link to Sidon weakened over the generations as they married mortal women after a while their actions became more, human and less godly, eventually Zeus, the leader of the gods was so displeased with what Lantis had become that. He came down from out Olympics to Atlantis to confront them Plato writes, quote, Zeus had gathered them together he said, and that's it the open ended. He said are the last two words of Plato's dialogue, the ultimate cliffhanger. But is the story unfinished or is the abrupt ending part of Plato's lesson Plato went on to write other works after this one. So perhaps he was planning to circle back and continue the story at a later date or maybe he felt he had set enough already. No one really knows. But what we do know is that these fifty pages ignited a two thousand plus year debate about whether Atlantis Israel or not during ancient times. Many people accepted the story as truth whether Plato intended it to be read that way or not even in more recent eras, some people point to the exact.

We don't see Volusia something that you can observe in your backyard, but you can and it goes fast and I'd happens everywhere. It's all in the hour ahead on travel with Rick steves. You could call it the first luxury cruise to Alaska and it had an amazing guest list railroad, Meg the Edward Herrmann invited John Muir, George bird Grinnell William doll and other leading scientists, artists and thinkers of his day to sail with him into the often uncharted waters of Alaska. Any ninety nine. He wanted to be sort of floating university to explore the wilderness that America purchased just a few decades earlier. It's passengers would provide the spark that got America's serious about conservation. Recently, travel writer, Mark Adams, retraced their journey on the much humbler state ferry system to see what Alaska's natural history and people had to teach him today.

Tell us where you can witness this to a little later in the hour. Let's start today's show with a look at what you can find when you visit the largest of the Greek islands Crete. It's where the earliest advanced civilizations in Europe were found more than four thousand years ago. We're joined by Greek travel experts, David wallet and Annastasia guy. Tanu welcome, legendary David. How're crayton's? The people who live on Crete different from Greeks and their outlook. I don't think there's a proud of person to be found in grace than a Creighton. Creighton are extremely proud of their long history that item and they're wonderful food. The people from Crete really see themselves as being a little bit different to the people from the Greek mainland Anastacia. When you think of the pride of the Crete people and the traditions, how does that survive in their dress? In the way the look when we travel there, you can find that still worn by older people and the largest city's badge. You find it definitely an out in the country and in small villages and the further up you go on the mountains, the more you find that. And yeah. I have this very particular scoff that they were on their head. It's black, of course. And usually the results are big moustache underneath, definitely because that's masculine thing and they have a black shirt in. They have Brown trousers that up the very distinct and to create unusually black boots and I was struck when I went to Crete that these kind of traditions survive more there than elsewhere in Europe. I mean, everything's becoming modern in the same as you travel around more and more but increased. You do find those traditions alive. David. I was in in create this last June and having been there for a while. I was wondering with ride, see some of these things like the old bridges and the long boots and the the cut shapes. But to my great surprise I have not this appeared. In fact, they've now become trendy and symbols for the young symbols for the young no way. Would that be? Is that sort of an expression of independence? I think it's because they see themselves different and they wanted to let people know that they're proud of that. Editions there's a lot of guns there. They used to be synonymous with crate guns, but you see less are these days. Although when you go walking, you see plenty of cartridges from the hunting season. Is that right? What would they be hunting farm firm primarily and anything that moves birds rabbits has. If you're an Athens, how easy is it to get down to Crete? It couldn't be more simple because there's boats that do the trip overnight, and there's lots of lots with a GNA. So let's see. You got five days for Crete. What would you do David if you're helping me plan my Harari if I was going to have five days, I would stick to the north and I would stick to Iraq layer, which is the capital and access point fo the famous Minoan palace of canosa's. And then I would go across to Honey, which is the second city on Crete, and it's just a beautiful old Venetian city from Honey. Can't you go up to the top of the mountain and hike down the gorgeous Maurya? Have you ever had that? What's it like? Well, a very long descend and the beginning. Thank you. About four kilometers to go down. You just go down a wind inch backing back, inbound down, don't then you move through the gorge, but there have really beautiful spots at that gorge in you meet people. There are people there. There is once goal, the gate in the result shepherd there who knows, of course, every guide and every person who goes often through that gorge in usually he has some cheese and if you know you well, he can bring some other stuff out as well. And you see also lot of the very unique flora and fauna off Crete and the raise show like him. Usually you're, you see whiled ibex that they have there and it's only on Crete and has a very funny name. Actually it's called clicky, weekly curriculum, David. If I remember correctly, the tourist generally catch a minibus or something up for the almost like at sunrise, and then they walks which backing down, then they have a long hike along the river with little places to swim along the way they reach a very, very narrow part in the gorge where you can almost stretch your arms out and touch either of the the sheer cliffs. And then at the. Bottom, you have a beautiful remote beach and a boat waiting to take you to the next town from where you catch the shuttle bus back to your home base. Is that still basically the routine that is still the routine low. They have come up with an alternative for the lazy person who does not want to do the whole woke. You can take about two. I think it's like Romilly the base of the gorge and you can do what they say. The gorge short way when he simply woke up to the iron gates and woke back again, undone tool, the other very strenuous stuff. Okay. So there is for the quick tourist and for the person who wants to spend a little more exercise tour guides NS Schick a tattoo from Thessaloniki and Australian David Willard are experts on ancient Greece and the Mediterranean world. They're telling us about the island of Crete right now on travel with Rick STI, David. You mentioned the palace of canosa's Anastacia tell us about the the civilization that left us with this amazing palace prehistoric civilization on Crete and some of the Socratic. Islands, but most of the things we have preserved our on Crete and the cold, the minorities or amino once the name derives from the mythological, I king of them who was meanness or minus, and they have left some amazing remains of palaces and Crete. We have three big palaces, Malia nostrils festivals, oh, four, ANZAC crews. And there are also some ruins of villas the most known one, the most famous one because it was excavated by the English archaeologist off the time, Arthur evens, and it was reconstructed to an extent is the palace of Knossos, which is outside of heroin about half an hour's drive curriculum, and you can then probably the number one site that visitors are looking for his this palace of Noces is sort of rebuilt in a little bit over ambitious style by this archaeologist, because he couldn't really know right. How. Dispute about that. But when we think of the Minoan 's my images. Okay. You have the three thousand BC civilization in Egypt. And then the next real civilization to emerge was on Crete them and no one's. And that was a thousand years before the golden age of Greece that we always think of with Socrates Plato most probably those Menards where not Greeks Muslim. Probably that that have an alphabet. The structure of it is very close to what they had, but is a completely different thing. And it has not been decided yet. So we don't really know what language they spoke, and we do know that they had lots of relationships with some of these classic islands, like sand arena, for example, which is very close to create to the north of Crete, and we do have remains of frescoes. Lots of them most of them day did between the fourteenth and the eighteenth century basil. That's like nearly four thousand years old. Yes, it is. And so we have a an idea of how they looked like, but what happened to this. Visitation. I mean, how did they vanish? How did they vanish? That is a very good question del some years ago. It was believed that the reason was the eruption of the volcano of sand arena because it was dated in the fifteenth century. But now through new evidence and information that we have a radiocarbon dating, then the glaciers in Greenland, etc. It is dated in the seventeenth century. So archaeologists believe that it destroyed most probably the first palaces because we have three different palaces than on top of the other. And most probably either there were fighting against the other or the was a new big danger because we all have lots of references of people off the sea. It said, but nobody really knows nobody really knows. But fourteen hundred BC the Minoan are gone and the Mycenaean would be the next civilization that takes the forest. We move up towards Athens and the golden age of Greece. This is travel with Rick steves. I'm speaking with anesthesia guy Tanu and David Willard about the pretty impressive. Violent of Crete and David. When we think about tourism in Crete, I would imagine there's a lot of people that are going. They're not for ancient palaces or or hiked on the gorgeous Maury, but just for some fun in the sun. What's the tourism seem these days in Crete but at the trends, I think the trend is is is is dominated by by beach tourism. And I think the busiest month forbid tourism, obviously that the warmest months, which June July August and September. I have to say, I'm not a beach person on lead. You don't go to creep for the peaches, and therefore I choose not to join those months. The me the real craters is the countryside out walking. It is spectacular countryside, who would be filling those those beach resorts where what countries are they coming from these a, a lot of them a British, and they go there and they, they find reassuring signs that say, things like full English breakfast and people who don't want from them with any words that might be in Greek, but the new arrivals of the Russians the Russians in large numbers because they come from a country that's. England, so to Crete. And would these be individual travellers or mostly packaging now, then illegal package groups, very few individuals to see them as packets groups to sort of parallels zones. I guess people are going for cultural travel and people are looking for a change in weather, but not necessarily a change in culture. Yes, and just have a romp on the beach. Let's finish our discussion of Crete with just a little bit about the Creighton cuisine and a Stacey. When you think of food in Crete, what do you think. Well, I definitely think I of a beverage rocky rocky. Brockie because you're greeted with it everywhere. You're welcome with it everywhere, and it's it's a big offense. It's an insult to drink it, and then you start eating. And the first thing that comes to mind are land snails. They're called cohe and they're boiled, usually I've had them in many different ways, like boiled in water with rocky, of course, or with Rosemary, and in lemon olive oil or a with onions and tomato. I mean they taste great to land snails and rocky. When I'm in Crete David Willett let's say you're stepping into a barn creeped and you sit down x. to the bar and there's a tall proud Creighton with a big mustache and a pistol tucked in his belt and he's going to buy a drink.
