3,500-Year-Old Advanced Minoan Technology

I'm Josip and I'm a newbie here
I'm really interested in ancient technologies, came upon this forum and thought I'd give it a try

Here's an article I've read about an old 3,500-year-old Minoan ship that was not seen until the 1950's.

"The Minoans employed advanced construction methods using natural materials to create seaworthy composite ship hulls which would not be out-of-place in a modern-day marina. The construction method does not appear to have been used by, or transferred to, other thalassocracies which followed, e.g. Phoenicians. The technology represents a ‘lost art’ before 1500 BC that would not be seen again until the 1950s AD. "

Hope you like it
