In 1900, it begins excavations in the islands (Crete in particular). It discovered there the mythical age of the palates crétois, with Cnossos (Minoan Crete of the Bronze Age), which had already been mentioned in old texts, but whose existence until there could not have been proven. The site had been effleuré already by Heinrich Schliemann, but Evans releases from them the palate, whose state of conservation leaves something to be desired. It thus decides to start an archaeological rebuilding in situ , i.e. on the same spot (in archaeological terms, a Anastylose).
The throne room thus was entirely reconstituted, but it corresponds of nothing so that it had had to be (paintings in the throne room similar to the painting of the modern art type of this time). Moreover, it is impossible for the current archeologists to reach the sub-bases.
Its work was worth to him the Médaille Copley in 1936.
