Knossos Game Additional info:
Knossos game is an ancient board game discovered by Evans in the Palace of Knossos and dates back to 1600 BC.
It is a "race game" but also portrays an ancient symbolism about life and the voyage to Hades and return.
The gap between the two parts of the board is suppose to be the river or ocean that separates the world of the living from the world of the dead, found far beyond the sea where the sun descends.
Ceramic or pottery refers to a process of forming, firing or baking, and glazing or decorating a mixture of clay and other materials, then refiring it to harden the glaze.
The three ceramics are earthenware, stoneware and porcelain.
Stoneware is made from a particular type of clay that is fired at high temperatures, generally up to 2,372 °F (or 1,300 °C).
Stoneware, named after its dense stone like quality after firing, is tougher and more durable.
