    Is there any evidence for a climate change around this time ? i hope to link
    a change in climate with the fall of the Mycenaean civilisation, a date for any
    climate change would solidify other historical data. thanks.

    Isn't picking a conclusion and searching for supporting evidence the wrong way to go about things?

    Is that not the way, formulate a theory then attempt to falsify it ?

    I'd say formulate a theory/hypothesis based on what's already been observed, then look deeper into it to try to falsify it. But anyway, carry on.

    That is a problem with dark age history matthyaouw, there are very few observations, only myth, how can one look deeper into myth. :smile:

    When science has few answers i think it goes back to what is on the menu,
    regardless of fact, only what can come from some fertile educated mind is
    then considered, then the mathamaticians compute if what comes from this
    mind are in the realms of reality, the scientific method is all ways unproved answers, so why bother ?
    Thanks for your reply Andre :smile:
