This is one of many of Richard Vallance posts about the Linear B ancient scripts writings.  As you all know Richard is teaching me this subject and I thought my fellow bloggers would like to read more of his translations  as he explains in great detail more than I can about the Minoan/Mycenaean writings which help bring the past culture to life. Please leave a comment and or a like on his blog and not mine. I will be posting more of Richard translations very soon. Don’t forget please leave him a comment as he is dedicated to his subject and works so very hard.

The Archaeology News Network: Possible evidence of human sacrifice at Minoan Chania

Source: The Archaeology News Network: Possible evidence of human sacrifice at Minoan Chania

There has always been a controversy as to whether human sacrifice took place during Minoan times. I believe this is an old post so I shall investigate further to see if there is any positive proof. If so I shall update this post.
