The topic also allows treating the destruction of Mycenaean palaces and the problems related to the beginning of the Dark Ages around 1200 BC (as well as the Sea Peoples).
The course is complemented by a very dense visual illustration and documentation via academia.edu is provided.
Occasional intervention by postdocs and invited lecturers (in English).
