ABSTRACT
The article discusses the author's experience in visiting a museum and the site of a Minoan palace at the fishing village Kato Zakro in Crete, Greece with art collectors Harriet and Leon Pomerance. There are speculations that the export of timber to Egypt is one of the sources of revenue of the palace. The author learned that D. G. Hogarth was the first person who conducted an excavation at Zakro. The positions of the wide doors at the palace courtyard is marked by threshold stone.
