It was the latter that attracted the attention of Matthew Bauer, a young linguist from Wisconsin who traveled to the Range, an area of Minnesota known for its iron ore and strong accent, to interview some of its older citizens.

 Dark Age in Greece
For example, it describes a kind of helmet made of boar's tusks which is known archaeologically only from the Mycenaean period and was apparently unknown in Homer's time; also the poem mentions only weapons made of bronze, something true of Mycenaean period, but in the later period much use was made of iron.
Certainly, the presence of speakers of the dialect descended from that of the Mycenaeans in the interior of the Peloponnesus and in Cyprus suggests that they were pushed aside by the Dorians and retained possession only of the less desirable mountainous interiour, but this does not indicate when this happened.
In Mycenaean times, there was cultural unity (physical remains in all sites are similar), and all signs indicate that everyone spoke a single dialect related to the later Arcado-Cyprian dialect.

 RECENT DISCOVERIES AT ASHKELON
Although they had long since adopted a Semitic dialect similar to Hebrew, as we know from ostraca (inscribed potsherds) of the late Iron Age found at Ashkelon, it appears that the Philistines retained a sense of their cultural identity throughout their entire history, and even took it with them into their Babylonian exile.
Moreover, the power and prosperity of the Philistines of Ashkelon was maintained, except for a short period of Israelite domination under David and Solomon, throughout the Iron Age, until the complete destruction of the city by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar in 604 B.C.--18 years before he did the same to Jerusalem.
Three years after the inscription was written the wealthy city fell--but only after a long, seven-month siege mounted by the Crusaders under King Baldwin III of Jerusalem, who had to muster all of the forces available to him in order to accomplish the task.
