Recent excavations at the ruins of Knossos on the island of Crete, Greece have revealed that the ancient city was significantly larger than previously thought. Archaeologists believed the city had suffered decline beginning around 1200 BC. The findings suggest this was not the case, and that Knossos had instead prospered. Many Iron Age ceramics and artifacts were discovered both in dwellings and in cemeteries, which showed its imports came from Cyprus, Greece, Iran, Italy, Egypt, and Sardinia. The island of Crete is the destination of the Apostle Paul's letter to Titus, whom he had left there to 'straighten out what was left unfinished and appoint elders in every town' (Titus 1:5).
