Rise & Fall
Fascinating story about a vanished civilization in the Cyclades (off the coast of mainland Greece)… Its builders had created an incredibly advanced city… one with sophisticated metallurgical skills, underground drainage systems and a pyramidal landscape constructed from hundreds of tons of imported marble.
And then, suddenly, it was gone.
What caused this civilization to rapidly decline and disappear? A force from within or without?
I’m reminded of the Civilization Self Destruct Code Glyph sequence — and our own narrow escape thanks to Carrie Campbell’s courage and sacrifice.
New excavations on the remote island of Keros reveal monumental architecture and technological sophistication at the dawn of the Cycladic Bronze Age.
