Many questions remain to be cleared up in this field of archaeology. We have very scanty details of the rela- tions, commercial and cultural, between Egypt and Crete. We have still less knowledge of how the Minoan civilisation reached Greece. There is a gap of 600 years between the fall of Knossos and the first recorded Greek history, about 800 b.c. Most exciting question of all, " Will the writing of this island race, preserved on hun- dreds of clay tablets, be solved ?

Solutions turn up in weird, unexpected ways ; it is, for instance, within the realms of possibility that a stone or papjrrus giving ancient Egyptian and Cretan equivalents in writing might be found in Tutankh- amen's tomb in the autumn, or that some chance traveller in Greece might find a clue from a Greek-Minoan inscrip- tion.
