Before the Greek Dark Age
Around 1200 B.C., the Dark Age of Greece covered the once thriving Mycenaean civilization making them just a memory in songs and stories. This period, that lasted over three hundred years and left virtually no records behind, left us in the dark as to what happened during these years. Hence, the name “Dark Age”. What we do know about the time is sketchy and determined by archaeological digs throughout the area around the Aegean Sea.
