Why do many historians consider the term "Dorian Invasion" inadequate at describing the time from 1100-800 BCE when Dorian influence pervaded Greece?
Dorian warriors were not fierce enough to make any invasion successful over the long term.
The Dorians never actually entered Greece.
The Dorians didn’t exactly conquer the Mycenaeans.
The Mycenaeans never completely lost control of Greece before 800 BCE.
Athena’s traits reflect ancient Greeks’ appreciation—
of feminine beauty and passionate love.
of females’ propensity to be skilled at things like hunting and archery which were usually associated with men.
that the gods regularly intervened in human affairs and had fun at humans’ expense.
that overemphasizing military prowess could be dangerous to society.
Hellenization is a prime example of cultural diffusion because Hellenization—
connected Alexander the Great’s empire with the Silk Road.
spread Greek culture throughout Alexander the Great’s empire.
ensured Persian culture would never make it back to Greece.
gave Greece the resources it needed to continue its cultural dominance.
