Did The Mymidons Have Origins In The Unetice Culture?

The Old European Culture blog makes a plausible conjecture that the Mymidons (Ant People) of the Greek epics who were led by Achilles in Homer's Illiad were members of the Tumulus culture of which the Unetice Culture was one of the most famous and important representatives. 

In this analysis the name "ant people" refers to the fact that a burial tumulus looks very much like an ant mound in the pertinent region. Several other clues, and the coincident timing of the relevant cultures and the Trojan War, support, but do not definitively prove, this idea.

Hi Andrew,

Got any idea what happened to Bernard's Blog?

Nope. Looks like he didn't pay his hosting fee invoice maybe.
