Narrative

Labyrinths were laid out by sailors, to catch the storm. They have different sorts of layouts. The entrance is facing different directions. Often there is a special elaborated feature in the middle. Around the Baltic Sea, they can be medieval, but can also be made later. The oldest labyrinths can be found by the Mediterranian sea and are from the Bronze Age.
