Ancient Mycenae

Ancient Mycenae is an archaeological site in north-eastern Peloponnese, Greece. Founded about 1350 BCE, it is located about 90 kilometres (56 miles) south-west of Athens on a hill rising 900 feet above sea level. Ancient Mycenae was a major centre of Greek civilisation and a military stronghold which was a dominant power during Bronze Age Greece.

Mycenae, an acropolis site was ideally positioned to be a centre of power to command the Isthmus of Corinth with a strong defensive and strategic position.
