Archaeologists found that Mycenae was, actually, a wealthy city, a centre of commerce, arts and crafts, as well as a powerful military stronghold of the late period of the Bronze Age, a period of wars. That’s why the citadel of Mycenae was found to be fortified with huge, “cyclopean” walls. They are called “cyclopean” because they were made of massive blocks of stone and in ancient times people believed that were built by one-eyed, strong giants, the Cyclopes.
