    Visiting the citadel of Mycenae is traveling back in time almost 3, years to the 14th and 13th century BCE, when Mycenae was at the peak of its religious, political, and economical power. But its mythical as well as its historical roots go back even further in time, and its power once reached far beyond the plain beneath its walls. Mycenae lies some kilometres northern to the city of Argos on the top of a low hill that overlooks the valley stretching till the shores of the Argolic on a naturally fortified location, the Acropolis of Mycenae is the first thing the visitor sees by the time he sets foot on the region. Huge stone blocks put to create an impenetrable wall for the protection of the “Anax” and his.

    However the landscape here is dominated by the "Grave Circle B", and the monumental tholos tombs, among them the ones attributed to the legendary royal family of Mycenae. The burial monuments of Mycenae also yielded the treasure of finds, now exhibited at the National Archaeological Museum and at the on site Museum of Mycenae. Grave Circle A is a 16th-century BC royal cemetery situated to the south of the Lion Gate, the main entrance of the Bronze Age citadel of Mycenae in southern Greece. This burial complex was initially constructed outside the fortification walls of Mycenae, but was ultimately enclosed in the acropolis when the fortifications were extended during the 13th century BC.

Mycenae (Greek Μυκῆναι Mykēnai or Μυκήνη Mykēnē), is an archaeological site in is about 90 km south-west of Athens, in the north-eastern Peloponnese. In the second millennium BC, Mycenae was one of the most important centers of early Greek civilization with a strong army.

The time of Greek history from about BC to about BC is called Mycenaean GreeceCoordinates: Coordinates: 37°43′51″N 22°45′23″E /. The book has a lot basic info on the mycenaeans and a lot of really great photos that accompany the text.

What to do in Mycenae Lion Gate. The main gateway to the citadel of Mycenae is the most iconic symbol of this archaeological site. Famous from ancient Greek literature as King Agamemnon's capital, Mycenae was the site of almost unbroken excavation during the 20th century, and this continues today.
