More > 1987). This paper explores the advantages that an older student has in language learning over a younger one.

More > European literary expression. It sends us a message from the abysm of time at the dawn of Western culture and draws a line between a before and an after - between prehistory and history.

This eclectic, interdisciplinary approach has produced unexpected results thanks to the constant verification in the field of the available data. The author's twenty years of research into the Paistos Disc and on the Cretan hieroglyphic script now offers a unique and completely new interpretation of a puzzle that Minoan scholars have being working on for over a century.< Less
