The art and architecture of different cultures have many characteristics in common. We discuss the idea and mechanisms of the spread of culture across the eastern Mediterranean cities, China and South America and contrast them with what went before. The Minoan period saw trade between Crete, Aegean and Mediterranean settlements, particularly the Near East. Through their traders and artists, cultural influence reached beyond Crete to the Cyclades, Greece, the Old Kingdom of Egypt, copper-bearing Cyprus, Canaan and the Levantine coast, as well as Anatolia to Constantinople.
