It was an extremely difficult maze called "The Labyrinth".Daedalus,a prisoner forced to invent for King Minos, built it and put a Minotaur(a.k.a., a 'bull') in the middle.Many people sought to escape, but not until a man named Theusus solved with the help of the king's magical daughter Achriande. She gave him a magical string, and helped him solve the puzzle of The Labyrinth.

Who was the daughter of Minos?

I believe Minos had several daughters, but two of the more famous ones are Phaedra and Ariadne.

Ariadne helped Theseus defeat the minotaur (her half brother) and also helped him escape from the labyrinth by giving him a magical ball of thread that traced his path to freedom. However, Theseus abandoned her while she was sleeping despite all she had done. Dionysus - god of wine and revelry - found Ariadne (while she was still sleeping) and made her his wife. What happened to Ariadne after this is debated (she may have been shot by Artemis, turned to stone by Perseus, or become immortal).

Phaedra ended up marrying Theseus (despite his treatment of her sister) and had two children with him. However, she became bored with Theseus and tried to tempt Hippolytus (Theseus' son by Antiope) into having an affair with her. Hippolytus refused her, and Phaedra - bent on revenge - convinced Theseus he had raped her. Theseus, enraged, ordered Hippolytus' death. Phaedra, regretting her actions and beset by guilt and grief, killed herself.

How were the Minoans and the Mycenaeans civilizations different?

The Minoans were the first people to "settle down" in Greece. they were rugged people, so when the Mycenaean came they tought them sea trade, a religion, a language and overall improved their life to become more civilized.

The Minoans were more uncivilized people, where as the Mycenaean were more civilized.

______________________________________________________________________

Actually, I believe it's the other way around- The Minoans were very civilized and advanced (think running water and the real-life Atlantis) and the Myceneans were uncivilized "barbarians."

The Minoans were a highly developed, very intelligent society that had improved painting, fresco making, travel, boat building, and pot making, as well as developing a huge trade system and navy, and "creating" running water. The Mycenaeans were a bellicose, warlike people who stole ideas from the Minoans and created little for themselves. After the Minoan civilization fell, many of their advances were lost for centuries until modern technology. The Mycenaeans had no major interests in art and beautiful cities, but in war.
