The Minoans lived on the island of Crete from 2000-1500 BCEThe Minoans thrived in the neolithic era. It is really unknown how the Minoans got to the island but historians know that the Minoans stayed on the island for roughly 500 years before being wiped out by a tsunami. The Minoans were based on the island of Crete, located in the center of the Mediterranean Sea. The island of Crete had an abundance of natural resources that the Minoans used to their advantage. The Minoans did a lot of farming because the soil was very rich and good for farming. Fishing was another thing that the Minoans did to gather food. The Minoans were also excellent craftsmen making pottery and sculptures out of bronze and clay. They also used these items to trade.
