They contain important ruins from the 15th to the 12th century BC, and are the forerunner in the development of classical Greek culture. The archaeological site of Mycenae is located about 90 km to the southwest of Athens, in northeastern Peloponnese. It was an important centre of Greek civilization in the second millennium BC.
