Tucked away at the northern edge of the fertile Argolis plain lie the remains of ancient Mycenae, hub of a mighty civilization the dominated the Greek world between 1600 and 1200 BC. Thought ot have arrived from Anatolia (modern Turkey), the Mycenaeans were the first Bronze Age civilization to emerge on the European mainland. The Mask of Agamemnon and other golden artifacts found here are now among the star attractions at the Natl Archaeological Museum in Athens.
