      Palmer's challenge to Sir Arthur Evans' archaeological methods. Knossos had a huge palace and a population of over 10, people at its peak. The chief of these incorrect inferences is that the Mycenaean achievement was a consequence of their own inventiveness and initiative and that they were leaders and innovators in all kinds of activities in which they were nothing of the kind.

Samuel supplies an excellent brief bibliography and singles out for special praise, Vermeule's Greece in the Bronze Age, but I find little evidence in this present volume that books such as Palmer's Mycenaeans and Minoans, Denys Page's History and the Homeric Mycenaeans and Minoans book, Gurney on the Hittites and Hutchinson on Crete, or even Vermeule, have been read and digested.

Samuel ignores all of this, and I have a feeling that he is not fully aware of it. Now known as the Thera Eruption, it was so great that earthquakes destroyed buildings and structures in much of the surrounding region.

Due to their cultural affinities with the Minoans and the fact that they conquered Crete yet still carried on many Minoan traditions, the Mycenaeans are viewed by some scholars as the later torchbearers of a greater Aegean civilization, much the way the Romans carried on Hellenic civilization after the Greeks.

The Mycenaeans lived mostly on mainland Greece and were the first people to speak the Greek language. Their activities and raiding were wide ranging.

Minoan men were often depicted clad in little clothing while women's bodies, specifically later on, were more conservatively covered up. The Greek Dark Age was a period of decline, famine, and lower population throughout the region.

A tidal wave was launched that destroyed much of the northern coast of Crete that may have included the governing structure at Knossos.

Mycenaeans
