Mycenae - Wikipedia

Using Homer it is easy to identify the Myceneans with the Achaeans that that Homer refers to. In Homer, Iliad book 2, line 494 and following there is a catalog of ships and the land that provided them. Mycenae is one of these. And the other places correspond closely to the findings of Mycenaean ruins. Denys Page speaks to this topic.

During ceremonies the dress of Minoans and Mycenaeans is similar but on other occasions it differs. Clay figures are typically female and wear a polos, a tall headdress associated with divinities in Classical Greece. For an example see Three female figures

Frescos such as those found at Pylos ( The palace of Nestor at Pylos ) show a similarity with the images of the Minoan Culture. But this may be because the artists were Minoan or they were intentionally copying the rich nature of the Minoan culture. Particularly questionable are the clothing styles. The following are images from Mycenaean pottery:

The archaeological correlate for the societies who were participating in the Trojan War in the Iliad and the Odyssey is the Helladic or Mycenaean culture. What archaeologists think of as Mycenaean culture grew out of the Minoan cultures on the Greek mainland between 1600 and 1700 BC, and spread to the Aegean islands by 1400 BC. Capitals of the Mycenaean culture included Mycenae, Pylos, Tiryns, Knossos , Gla, Menelaion, Thebes, and Orchomenos .

Crops grown by Mycenaean farmers included wheat, barley, lentils, olives, bitter vetch, and grapes; and pigs, goats, sheep, and cattle were herded. Central storage for the subsistence goods was provided within the walls of the city centers, including specialized storage rooms for grain, oil, and wine . It is apparent that hunting was a pastime for some of the Mycenaeans, but it seems to have been primarily an activity for building prestige, not obtaining food. Pottery vessels were of regular shape and size, which suggests mass production; everyday jewelry was of blue faience , shell, clay, or stone.

The people were involved in trade throughout the Mediterranean; Mycenaean artifacts have been found at sites on the west coast of what is now Turkey, along the Nile River in Egypt and the Sudan, in Israel and Syria, in southern Italy. The Bronze Age shipwrecks of  Ulu Burun  and Cape Gelidonya have given archaeologists a detailed peek into the mechanics of the trade network.
