In this article it gives you a brief description of the Mycenaean Empire and how they came into existence and how they fell as well. The civilization peaked from 1650 to 1200 and then went into the dark age. The article also mentions that the setting of the Odyssey and the Iliad could possibly be in Mycenae. The civilization ultimately collapsed due to the  the Northern greeks the Dorians (also called the sons of Hercules) invaded with iron weapons at hand.
