This important archaeological site of Greece is witness of a great ancient civilization, the Mycenaean civilization, which was born in the Peloponnese region and thrived in the later Bronze period (1350-1200 B.C.). Soon it spread its presence throughout Greece. The Acropolis of Mycenae is surrounded by the great Cyclopean Walls apart from the southside, which is naturally protected by a stiff gorge. Other findings include the Palace, the Hall of the Throne, the central Lions' Gate, residences and big vaulted tombs. One of the most significant and glorious vaulted tombs is the Treasure of Atreas, which was built in 1250 B.C. Parts of its decoration, acquired by Lords Sligo and Elgin, are exhibited in museums abroad, mainly in Paris and London.
