The North Gate

A reconstruction, of course—basically anything that has a column or a fresco on the site is a reconstruction, many of them done by Arthur Evans and his team (how Evans basically bought the site and got himself first dibs on everything is a really interesting story of archaeological wiliness.)

Some of the reconstructions, like the fresco of the three ladies from the museum that I posted previously, may be complete inventions. The architectural reconstructions, like this gate, are (I hope) more reliable.
