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.

This article also brings up climate change as a major contributor as to why Greece Fell.  This particular article says that there was a drought that last for about 300 years.

Ricardo Salazar's curator insight, April 19, 2014 1:49 AM

This Article is very interesting because it talks about how the drought was the major factor of the fall of the "Ancient Greece. The  information that the Brandon Lee Drake, an archaeologist at the University of New Mexico said was very credible and interesting. For example he said how cities from Greece and Mediterranean were declining at the same period of time when Egypt was being attacked by  marauding sea bandits.

Issel Navarrete's curator insight, May 3, 2014 2:11 AM

This touches greatly on the similarities of the different Mycenaean centres during their rule of Ancient Greece. these centres included Thebes, Sparta, Midea, Argos and possibly Athens. Every centre had a big palace like building at the city centers. It notes that all the palaces in each city were very very similar noting the middle room were religious worship was held and the side rooms where other matters were dealt with. It also goes over there possible trading partners and the various artwork, from which we get most of our information from.
