The best evidence that the greeks were there is the epics themselves. Why take a story if it happened to another civilization? One of the evidence is pottery called grayware. The myceneans create something that is very similar to what the Anatolians were making, meaning there was most likely some communication between the two. In terms of pottery, the mainland stuff is made there and the Anatolian stuff is from there, but there are some things that they share so its too much of a coincidence. This morphs to tanware. Same deal, but its tan. Very creative name. The grayware is called minioware in Greece. By 1500 BC, its not being used anymore. It was replaced by Mycenaean pottery. But the Anatolian people were still using it. The tanware is very popular while the grayware isn’t. What homer describes aren’t exactly myceneans. He is most likely describing his own time period colored by some bits of the bronze age. According to homer, aggi was the most powerful and wealthy of all the Greek leaders.
