004 - Early Bronze Age

In this episode, we discuss the archaeological evidence for the early Bronze Age on mainland Greece and the Cycladic Islands; the arrival of the Indo-Europeans; and the rediscovery of three legendary Bronze Age cities (Troy, Knossos, and Mycenae) in the latter part of the 19th century AD

ca. 3000-2100 BC - early Bronze Age in Greece
ca. 2100 BC - Proto-greeks (part of Indo-Europeans) arrive in Greece
ca. 2100-1600 BC - middle Bronze Age in Greece; proto-Greeks mingle with the natives to develop a distinctly Helladic culture
