The Highlights of Mycenae
Mycenae is an archaeological site located northeast of the Peloponnese peninsula and is 90 kilometers southwest of Athens. It is one of the places in Greece that attracts the most tourists per year.
Its foundation is attributed to a legendary character from Greek mythology: Perseus, son of one of the most important gods, Zeus. It was one of the most influential city-states of Ancient Greece, the city's heyday lasting some 400 years.
The ruins of Mycenae were discovered at the end of the 19th century by a German archaeologist: Heinrich Schliemann who, after having read the epic poems where the city of Mycenae was mentioned, went in search of it.
Mycenae is considered a World Heritage Site since 1999.
Mycenae and its Culture
The Mycenaeans were a hierarchically composed people, those who had the best economy and power were the ones who governed, then there was a class made up of artisans and merchants, and these were followed by the lower classes which were the peasants, and finally, the slaves.
Politically, there was a supreme governor who lived in the palaces who was named wanax, the local chiefs called basileús, and the lawagétas who were the supreme military chief depended on him.
In the world archaeological findings, ceramics of Mycenaean origin have been found, mainly in different places in the Mediterranean and the Middle East, thanks to the fact that this civilization was great merchants and navigators.
