why did the minoans and mycenaeans depend on trade (1 point)

2 Answer

  • The minoans and mycenaeans depended on trade because their land couldn't supply certain goods that was needed for their everyday lifes.
  • The Minoans and The Mycenaean lived around Crete, Aegean and Mediterranean settlements in ancient Greece; Minoans are believed to be the mysterious Atlantis.

    Living at the crossroads of 3 continents made them experts at trading, bringing them wealth, since the conditions of their soil was not the optimal to cover all their expectations.

    So trading by sea became the keystone of their success and prosperity, exchanging food, art, pottery and any valuable item, and they imported most food from other countries.
