Mycenae, 1984. The Bronze Age citadel and acropolis of Mycenae covers a hilltop in the northeast Peloponnesos. It flourished from about 1800 to 1200 BC. The circular walled enclosure at left contains the famous Shaft Graves excavated by Heinrich Schliemann in the 1870s. These graves yielded treasures including a golden burial mask that Schliemann erroneously attributed to King Agamemnon, leader of the Greek forces in the Trojan War. The royal palace crowns the hill at upper right.
