The Mycenean empire is traditionally associated with mainland Greece and the nearby islands, but remains of their civilization have been found much further afield. This site report presents a Mycenean palace found at Nippur (a city in the heart of ancient Babylon) with a floor-plan and style similar to the palace at Tiryns. The remains at the site suggest a settlement following some sort of expulsion from Mainland Greece (perhaps in the semi-legendary Dorian invasion) and the development of a hybridized Mycenean/ Assyrian culture in the area. This startling find is detailed with excavation reports, photographs, diagrams, and illustrations.
