The Dark Ages were from 1100 BC to 700Bc in Greece. We call this period this way because we know very little about it. After the Dorians appeared on the peninsula and invaded the territory, no palaces were built.There were city-states that often quarrelled They traded and set up colonies along the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, They took over the Phoenician alphabet, had good soldiers, started the formation of the hoplite phalanx, in cities people fought against the tyrants.
