The Mycenaean language existed in the eastern Mediterranean region among the Bronze Age Mycenaeans (who called themselves Achaeans), an Indo-European people who arrived in Greece and the Aegean about 2000 BC, about 200 years after the destruction of the Tower of Babel and the creation of the various human languages.[1] They formed a culture - the first civilization on mainland Europe - starting about 1650 BC. The civilization, and with it literacy, disappeared between 1100 and 1000 BC in the great disruptions caused by the movement of what are called the "Sea Peoples" throughout the area. The language has been lost and is no longer spoken; however, its writing, known as Linear B, was deciphered in 1953, and shows the language to have been a form of Greek.
