Summary
The decoding of Linear B is one of the world's greatest stories. But this story is missing a crucial piece. Two men have dominated Linear B in popular history: Arthur Evans and Michael Ventris. But there was a third figure: Alice Kober, without whose painstaking work, recorded on pieces of paper clipped from hymn-sheets and magazines and stored in cigarette boxes in her Brooklyn loft, Linear B might still remain a mystery. Drawing on Kober's own papers, Margalit Fox provides the final piece of the enigma
