Excerpt from Excavations in Eastern Crete: Vrokastro There have not been wanting, however, scholars who have realized the importance of this period; Dr. Duncan Mackenzie in his masterly analysis of the pottery of the early iron age1 has indicated the probable place of the Achaean invasion in the series of inroads by northerners into the island. Certainly it is by a detailed study of the remains of this epoch that the relations of the Minoan culture to that of classical Greece may best be determined. The more exact our knowledge of this period, the clearer our conception of the extent and date of invasions intermediate between the fall of Minoan power and the dawn of classical Greece.
