This review is from: Riddle of the Labyrinth: The Quest to Crack an Ancient Code and the Uncovering of a Lost Civilisation (Paperback)
Linear B was deciphered by Ventris, but without the work of an American, Alice Kober, it wouldn't have happened, or at least not as quickly. Kober was to Ventris what Rosalind Franklin was to Watson & Crick. Margalit Fox tells her story as well as the stories of others who contributed to the effort with a lively writing style.
