The island of Crete and the surrounding Aegean islands were the Minoan civilization during the Bronze Age. While the civilization may be considered out of period for the SCA, the influences of the Minoan society can be seen in both Greek and Roman culture. The main primary sources of the society are frescos and tile artworks that can be found in cities like Knossos, Phaistos, Malia, and Zakros. It is from these art works that researchers and artisans can begin to recreate the clothing of Crete.
