Digging Up the Past: Sir Arthur Evans and the Palace at Knossos

Students explore the excavations of the Palace of Knossos on the Island of Crete. They create a simulated news broadcasting on the work of Sir Arthur Evans and his colleges. In their "news investigation" students cover such topics as an introduction into archeology, the culture of Minoan Crete and the Myth of Knossos. They film and present their news broadcasts to others. Students may also create a PowerPoint presentation.
