It is supposed to be the period around the Trojan War - the 12th Century BCE, covering the early Achaean Greek civilisation. We have no real historical record of this peri…od, just the archeological evidence and the traditional (not historical) stories concocted by the bards who made a living providing the entertainment of the epic poems. However Homer's poetic stories - Iliad and Odyssey - cover a preiod well beyond that - with elements fron the 14th to the 8th Century BCE mixed up in the core stories.. The 12th Century covers the end of the Mycenaean civilisation - thereafter the Sea People and the Dorian Greeks moved into Greece, and the growing surplus populations in Greece (Ionians and Dorians) began to spread east and colonise the Aegean Islands and Asia Minor - a process which lasted for half a millennium and extended west to the Western Mediterranean (Sicily, Italy, North Africa etc).
