English summary: Crete as seen from a new perspective: An aerial view of the cradle of Europe. Europa and the bull, the Minotaur, and the Labyrinth - Crete is the location of numerous myths. From here, not only did Daedalus and Icarus start their flight attempt, but long before Athens' rise, a great civilisation had its home on this island: The Minoan civilization was the first advanced European civilisation. It is attested in numerous excavation sites, one of the most impressive ones being the palace of Knossos. We also find remains from Classical times and Late Antiquity on Crete. This volume presents all important sites and the changeful history of the island throughout the millennia. It is illustrated with aerial photographs, which are able to show familiar as well as alien vistas in a completely new perspective. German text. German description: Kreta aus neuer Perspektive: Ein Blick von oben auf die Wiege EuropasEuropa und der Stier, der Minotaurus und das Labyrinth - Kreta ist Schauplatz zahlreicher Mythen. Doch von hier aus unternahmen nicht nur Dadalus und Ikarus ihren Flugversuch. Lange vor dem Aufstieg Athens hatte eine groae Zivilisation ihre Heimat auf der Insel: Die minoische Kultur war die erste europaische Hochkultur. Von ihr zeugen zahlreiche Ausgrabungsstatten, nicht zuletzt der beeindruckende Palast von Knossos. Doch auch klassische und spatantike Uberreste finden sich auf Kreta. Der Band widmet sich allen wichtigen Fundstatten und der wechselhaften Geschichte der Insel durch die Jahrtausende. Illustriert wird er durch Flugbilder, die Fremdes wie Bekanntes in einer ganz neuen Perspektive zeigen.
