BC alumni: Alice Kober, a classics professor at Brooklyn College in the 1930s and ’40s, played a key role in solving one of the 20th century’s great academic riddles: how to read a 3,400-year-old script known as Linear B, unearthed amid the ruins of the Minoan civilization of Crete, the mythic home of the labyrinth of Daedalus and the Minotaur. It was in an unknown language. Kober died in 1950 before she could complete her work. http://www.npr.org/2013/06/30/196233019/how-one-woman-nearly-deciphered-a-mysterious-script http://www.scmp.com/lifestyle/books/article/1270905/book-review-riddle-labyrinth-margalit-fox
