Highlights of Chania Archeological Museum

We both loved this ceramic pull along toy from 3500BC
 Some covetable jewelery
 A few amphorae
Amazing decoration on clay coffins
Lots of bird headed women -"interpretation is difficult"

Unlikely to get to Knossos as organised  tours have not yet started and it would be 5 hrs+  return by public transport so making the most of being in Chania while my ankle mends.

wonderful objects! The bull toy is amazing- I can hardly get my head around it being so old!
