Crete is the largest and the most populous of the Greek islands and the fifth-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Its capital is the harbor city of Heraklion, where the Historical Museum of Crete is located. Bloomington, Minn., photographer Dave Vorland visited the island recently, capturing photos of museum, where artifacts from 1600 B.C. are stored, as well as the Palace of Knossos, once the home of King Midas and other rulers. The palace, which is essentially a pile of rubble, remains an active archeological site.
