Greatly influenced Egypt
EX: a Minoan bull jumping mural was found in Avaris, complete with very Minoan
(specifically Knoss0s) maze like patterns.
EX: a Minoan style griffin/goddess figure found in Avaris as well
Popularity of Mycenaean pottery even more so than that of Minoan pottery
Residents are foreign traders
Timber, wine, olive oil, laxative beans, textiles, papyrus, grain
The Harem at Gurob
Foreign queens, wearing Aegean styles
Depictions of Men from Keftiu/Minoan Crete found in tombs of Egyptians
Oxhide Ingots from Cyprus
Uluburun Shipwreck
Where did the ship begin its journey? Who commissioned this? Mysterious.
Carried an immense amount of wealth, so it’s possible that the ship sunk due to the
weight it carried. A very simple/small ship so as to not attract attention.
