By 1200 B.C, the invaders had destroyed many of the Mycenaean strongholds. And the end of Mycenaean civilization came at about 1100 B.C. Soon the presence of these newcomers had caused enough upheaval in the Mediterranean Islands and Southern Europe, so as to cause the original African inhabitants to band together and leave.
Though the precise circumstances are unknown, it can be surmised that as more and more of these newcomers moved into the area, their need for more land and resources grew. Top left: Minoan snake Goddess
The natural result of this competition for land and resources would be conflicts and wars. As a consequence of these wars, there was a general collapse of the indigenous economies, and their trade.
This general collapse prompted some members, of seemingly all of the countries, to band together and head East and South, perhaps to re-populate their former homelands. Top second image: Black Youth Greece 300 B.C.E.
This confederation of the people of the Mediterranean countries became known as "The Sea People". Among this group called "The Sea People" were the following.
The Peleset and Tjeker (Minoans) of Crete, they would later be known as the "Philistines" after they had settled in Southern Canaan. Over time, this area became known by a form of their name "Palestine". The Lukka who may have come from the Lycian region of Anatolia, The Ekwesh and Denen seem to be identified with the original (Black) Greeks, The Shardana (Sherden) who may be associated with Sardinia, The Teresh (Tursha or Tyrshenoi), the Tyrrhenians - the Greek name for the Etruscans, and The Shekelesh (Sicilians?). The fate of those that stayed behind, would of course be absorption. Unfortunately for the Sea People, their first choice for a new homeland was Egypt. Pharaoh Rameses III easily defeated them, but allowed the Cretans to settle in Canaan. Bottom left: Black Youth Greece 100 B.C.E.
About 1100 B.C, the Mycenaean Greeks, refugees from their homeland, settled in Cyprus. They introduced their skills and produced many luxury articles in a mixed Mycenaean-Cypriot style. Cyprus initially escaped the invasions that finally destroyed Mycenaean and Minoan culture, but its own culture did not last much longer. By about 1050 B.C, the White invaders reached Cyprus too, and its culture ceased to exist. On Melos island, the most south westerly of the major islands of the Cyclades Islands. The great city of Phylakopi was destroyed in about 1100 B.C, by Dorian invaders. Bottom second image: Minoan Fresco.
With the exit of the "Sea People", the Eurasian invaders are now in a quandary. They have taken it, but they don't know how to use it, or how to maintain it. After all, they are still illiterate nomads. There follows a period known as the Greek "Dark Ages" - the conventional time-frame for this period is from 1,200 to 900 B.C. The Eurasians seemed to have used this three hundred years well. By the end of this period, they seem to have figured things out, and have continued their expansion.
It is said that the Greek Dark Ages were a time of Ionian settlement; and a consolidation into an alliance called the Ionian League. It is also said that the Archaic Period of Greece began with a sudden and brilliant flash of art and philosophy on the coast of Anatolia.
And that the first Greek science was devised by the Milesian School of philosophy: (Miletus was an ancient city on the western coast of Anatolia that after being sacked by the Anatolian Carians, was later resettled extensively by the Ionian Greeks - about 1000 B.C.).
If that is true, then much of the science and knowledge of the original Black Greek civilization, must have been destroyed by the wars of the White invasion, and was subsequently learned by Whites in Anatolia, from the Blacks there - who had a similarly advanced Black civilization - and then re-introduced into Greece by the White Greeks from Anatolia.
