King Minos’ labyrinth

Could a 4,000-year-old structure discovered in Crete, have been the legendary labyrinth built for Minoan King Minos, to contain the half bull, half human Minotaur?

The Minoans lived at the time of the Bronze Age and had been forgotten until a 20th-century archaeologist dug up evidence of their existence. This newly uncovered with distinctly Minoan design, consists of eight stone rings intersected by small walls—a labyrinth.
