The Quiz: One of the most popular attractions on Crete is the palace in the city of Knossos, built by what ancient civilization?
The Minoans built Knossos, sometimes called the oldest city in Europe as it was first settled in the Neolithic period, around 7000 BCE. Archaeologists believe as many as 18,000 people lived in Knossos by 2000 BCE, the height of the Minoan civilization. The city flourished before being abandoned sometime between 1380 and 1100 BCE for reasons that are unclear.
The correct answer to this quiz is Minoans.
