Nakassis questions:

(a) Is the concept of 'collapse' useful? Or maybe a better question is, when is it useful and when is it not?

(b) How important do we think environmental/climate change is to collapse in general terms?

(c) How important do we think it is in the specific case of the Mycenaeans?

(d) Why do states collapse? Can we generalize? And what kinds of lessons can we learn from our studies of collapse (if any)?
