Mycenae, “Rich in Gold”, the kingdom of mythical Agamemnon, first sung by Homer in his epics, is the most important and richest palatial centre of the Late Bronze Age in Greece. The finds from these monuments show that the powerful Mycenaean rulers, towered on a low hill, had the control of road and maritime communications, while participating in a complex network of commercial exchange with other parts of the Mediterranean.
