The Greek Dark Ages, or the Homeric era, is the period of Archaic Greece from (circa) 1200 BC to 750 BC.

Questions about the Greek Dark Ages should be about historical events in the wider Greek speaking world during the era. The Mycenaean civilization and the kingdom of Knossos are the most notable Greek civilizations of the time, and notable examples of Greek literature of the time are Homer's epics, the Iliad and the Odyssey.
