An­cient grave found

Rotorua Daily Post - - OUR PEOPLE -

Greece’s cul­ture min­istry says ar­chae­ol­o­gists have found an undis­turbed grave with pot­tery, weapons and jew­ellery at a heav­ily plun­dered ceme­tery that is more than 3500-years old. The dis­cov­ery was made at the Myce­naean-era ceme­tery near the vil­lage of Ai­do­nia and the an­cient Ne­mea site in the south­ern Pelo­pon­nese. Re­cent digs re­vealed a rock-cut cham­ber tomb with buri­als on two lev­els, the old­est dat­ing from 1650-1400BC.
