The Mycenaean Civilization: The Age Of Heroes

The fortified city of Mycenae in the Peloponnesus peninsula gave its name to the period from 1600 BC to 1100 BC, known as the Mycenaean civilization. Art and culture flourished within the feudal city-states of the Mycenaean world due to an abundance of wealth accumulated from trading and successful military expeditions. Homer, the legendary epic poet, extolled the prowess of its King Agamemnon, who led the Greeks in the Trojan War.
