    A Zoo or what?

    by Skipka Updated Oct 22, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Suprisingly you can meet here also peacocks :). A tourist should say: What a hell peacock is doing here? Well, I am clever experienced girl :) and should give u the proper answer. There is obvious situation to experience earthquakes on Crete in general and peacocks have special sensor for feeling when something like this will happen, so they are used also in other objects. I remember that I have seen them in the factory of chemicals where they tried the explosives under the ground. And peacocks always change habits when something went wrong. What a funny world ...

    Kouloures

    kouloures pit

    Three large pits, known as Kouloures what means rings, with stone lined walls were built in the West Court during the Old Palace period (1900-1700 B.C.). The excavation workmen gave them their name and Arthur Evans kept it.

    The function of the circular pits is not clear. Maybe it was for naughty children :) but they have been interpreted as rubbish dumps ether for all the refuse from the Palace or just
    the left-overs from sacred offerings or as a storage for grain.
