The palace at Thebes was destroyed c. 1250 B.C.E. The destruction of Knossos traditionally has been dated c. 1400–1380 B.C.E., the date given by Sir Arthur Evans. However, a review of the evidence from Knossos now makes it seem likely that the palace continued to exist under Mycenaean rule into the 13th century B.C.E. Exactly when in the 13th century B.C.E. the palace was destroyed is uncertain. See Eric Hallager, The Mycenaean Palace at Knossos: Evidence for the Final Destruction in the III B Period (Stockholm: Medelhavsmuseet, 1977).
