Oh, when is someone going to need to do research on the Minoans or Mycenaeans, so I can chip in with my expertise and do more than lurk here? I visit several times a day to read the discussions, but don't seem able to contribute much.

Well, I'm not researching them but I do find them interesting. Many years ago I read a book--I cannot remember the title--that began in the present with a group of divers, I think, finding a box. The box somehow was dangerous and it had to do with the Mycenaeans. Any ideas on what book that was? I've been looking for it for a while...

Don't know much about that period lauragil. Why not tell us what YOU find exciting about the M & M s and see if you can get us enthused?!
It's always great to learn something new :)

I minored in classical and near eastern archaeology, so I'm happy to pitch into any discussion too!

You asked for it...

At some point in the future I will be writing a real work of serious historical fiction (or as serious as I am capable of being, anyway) set in Troy. The main character will be female. I have no idea where to begin as far as research goes. Figuring that everyday life would be rather similar to that of the Mycenaeans with some influence from Hittite culture as well. What have you got for me?
