Experience the History of Migration in Ancient Greece with WisdomMaps: The Future of the Past!
The history of migration in ancient Greece reflects the conflict and turmoil that wracked Greece from the 11th century BCE to the end of its Dark Ages in the 9th century BCE. These migrations led to the settlement of Mycenae, the islands of the Aegean Sea, Cyprus, Minoan Crete and the western shores of Anatolia by consecutive waves of Aeolian, Ionian, Doric, and Achaean tribes. These were more arbitrary occurrences rather than the planned colonizations of a mother city, later led by mythologized heroes in the mold of Homer’s Aeniad. Mycenae became the first mainland Greek civilization, and the Trojan Wars it became embroiled in are the bedrock of early Greek history.
