DAIDALIKA is a website dedicated to the study of the Aegean scripts (Cretan "hieroglyphics", the Phaistos Disk, Linear A and Linear B).

The site, created by Dr. Gareth Owens of the Technological Educational Institute of Crete, offers a valuable introduction to the subject, including small biographies of all the scholars involved in the discovery and decipherment (e.g. Sir Arthur Evans, Michael Ventris, John Chadwick and James Hooker).

A must see for all those interested in the study of ancient languages.
