Wim Thanks for the link.
Yes I have read Wunderlich.
I've also read the Ann Brown (of the Ashmolean) account of Evans' work, she doesn't refer to Wunderlich but obviously doesn't accept at face value everything Evans said ; and the BM published book, "Minoans", by Lesley Fitton. It is also interesting but doesn't mention Wunderlich either. Both of these suggest that the Evans account of Knossos/Minoan palaces needed modifying and hint that they were more palaces of dead than the living.
The Evans biography, "Minotaur" by Macgillivray does mention Wunderlich and is puzzled why there was no reasoned rebuttal, it was published in 2000. I'm now waiting on the Crete Oxford Archaelogical Guide by Macdonald & Paton which is in preparation.
My quest for a reasoned critique continues.
Ps do you know what Coppens' credentials are?
