In this city what do we find: residences, store houses (goods, dyes etc. ), workshops, courtyards: decorated ceremonial rooms, some type of ritual held there but we don"t know what. Trade and interconnectivity: we talk about globalization as it is a new thing, greece is not just by itself and growing alone. It is connected by different trade, ideas, religions etc: always about the near east. So if we cannot figure out the reasons, we go to mainland greece. The mycenaeans: minoan decline c. 1450 bc, knossos, so we know it was the opposite, the mycenaean"s conquered the minoans, palaces, mycenae, pylos, tiryns, thebes, administrative and economic centers. Administration and government: linear b tablets give us clues, pylos, c. 1200 bc tablets found that date back to 1200 bc. We know that warfare was extremely important in these societies especially amongst elite: pottery depicts chariots, chariot probably expansive, helmets found made out of the tusks of boars.
