Archaeologists find Ancient Greek tomb filled with gold, silver and bronze by GCT
Archaeologists have uncovered more than 3,500 objects in a Bronze Age warrior’s tomb in southwestern Greece.
The excavation sponsored by the University of Cincinnati and led by husband-and-wife archaeologists Jack Davis and Sharon Stocker near the ancient city of Pylos began in 2015.
In the same year, they uncovered an intact adult male skeleton of an ancient Greek warrior and excavated 1,400 objects including weapons, jewels, armour and silver and gold artefacts.
Since 2015, the number of artefacts recovered from the grave has reached over 3,500 including a historically significant Minoan stone called the Pylos Combat Agate and four signet gold rings with detailed images from Minoan mythology.
