The latest on Bronze Age Greece

My students might be forgiven if they get the notion that I believe the entire world revolves around my Western Civ classes. Sometimes, however, it does. Yesterday I found online the announcement of of two incredible finds from Bronze Age Greece, just in time for me to talk about them today’s lecture.

The first regards the unearthing of an unknown palace complex near Mycenae; the second a sunken Bronze Age city tentatively dated to 2500 BC. I haven’t had time to go through the articles systematically and find other material on these sites, but I wanted to post these links in time for my 11:30 lecture.
