From the Paper:"Between the eighth and sixth centuries BC, a large number of cities were founded along the coasts of the Black Seas and the Mediterranean Seas. This was part of a major Greek colonization movement promoted by the mother city-states that already existed in Greece. Much led up to this period of colonization such as events during the Dark Ages. During the period known as the Greek Dark Ages, individuals lived in small tribal units; some sedentary and some agricultural, while others were nomadic. Between 1200 and 1100 BC, it appears many abandoned their cities because of a ferocious invasion of northern Greek barbarians, the Dorians, who had wiped out the Mycenean population."
