5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing story, excellent writing, good Kindle presentation, 5 April 2014
This review is from: Riddle of the Labyrinth: The Quest to Crack an Ancient Code and the Uncovering of a Lost Civilisation (Paperback)
Even if one has no knowledge of Linear B, this account of the discovery of the Linear B tablets and the decipherment of the code is intriguing and easy to grasp because it is thorough, very well written and logically organized.
The inclusion of charts and samples of the Linear B characters facilitates a better understanding of what the researchers were dealing with in trying to crack the code. That the code was cracked in a day when there were no computers, photocopiers, etc. is one of the most striking aspects of the story.
Recommended for: history buffs, archeology enthusiasts, linguists, and anyone interested in reading something rather different from the usual novel or non-fiction book.
