It's not that anyone expected modern Greeks to be pure Mycenaens. It's only later research which started to shed ligh into the Slavic admixture in the Balkans.



I postulated that Doric Greeks were somewhat different as well. But we still don't have sufficient evidence for that.
But we do. Not all Greeks are homogenous. The ones in the Aegean/eastern parts diverge.
