The proposed classification was favourably received by my colleagues, to several of whom I subsequently had an opportunity of explaining many points in detail on the scene of the excavations at Knossos itself.
Subsequent discoveries made some modifications of the original system desirable, and a sketch of this revised outline of classification was laid by me before the Archaeological Congress at Rome in October, 1912, where the idea of the present work received most welcome encouragement.
In the case of the Palace site of Knossos not only the immense com plication-of the plan itself, with its upper as well as its lower stories, but the volume and variety of the relics brought to light - unrivalled perhaps in any equal area of the Earth's surface ever excavated - have demanded for the working up of the material a longer time than was required for the actual excavations. To take a case in point, the painted stucco fragments could only be gradually pieced together as the result of long and laborious efforts.
