A Warrior’s Grave at Pylos

Looks like Jack Davis and Co. had quite a field season this year–here’s a NYT story on the unlooted Mycenaean grave that they found back in May.The grave dates to ca. 1500 BC, before the great palaces were built on mainland Greece. This is an exceptional discovery, to say the least.

And check out this more detailed article in UC Magazine (more pics, a catalog, and a YouTube video with one of the excavators).
